    Few questions | New to emby

    Hello everyone I used plex for quite a while now, but want to switch to a different solution and emby looks really promising. Does emby work completely offline after install ? I already read that it requires to validate your subscription every few weeks but besides that? Like on plex i had the problem when i disconnect my Router from the internet, the menu (mainly the pictures from actores and covers) vanish or are displayed wrong. So are the artworks and covers stored localy or accessed everytime through the internet. Is the subscription server or client based? So if i buy lifetime

    Noob questions

    So I'm pretty much brand new to the media server thing, and hoping someone can jump start my feeble knowledge on the subject. I've got a netgear R6350, so I can't install the emby server side app on it, but it is capable of running NAS via USB. I'm looking to run emby client side from Roku TVs/boxes. Can I set up the server manually (via IP and port) or do you have to have both the client and server side communicating?

  7. Hello all. I apologize in advance if this is long and sound nuts. I have just about lost my mind as I have spent last 5 days on Google and these forums trying desperately to get Emby to work. (by the way I have seen the software work on a friend at work and was blown away so I immediately signed up for premiere account. So I know it is possible and will be great once I get it going. Only difference is I want to use Linux and not windows like my friend. Major Kudos to the developer for this awesome software.) To my problem, as stated in title, I'm running Emby on a (at first) headless U
  8. !. Can I run Emby side by side with Plex ( just recently switched to Plex from WMC 7) and not 100% happy so am giving Emby a try - have heard good things)? 2. Can Emby and Plex share the same HD-Homeruns (if not all tuners are in use)? 3. If I need to trail the Windows Theatre I assume I need to buy a 1 month Premiere subscription before biting the bullet and buying Lifetime? 4. What is the best TV Guide to use for Australia?

    Network Path Problems

    Hi all, So I'm having problems setting up my library on only one of my drives. I know this is probably a permissions issue, but I just cant figure out what the problem is. These are my media locations, the first two work fine, but the USER_DATA drive does not, and i get the error. All locations are accessible from my Linux machine. /home/alex/Videos /mnt/BACKUP_DRIVE/media /mnt/USER_DATA/media1 /home/user/Videos drwxr-xr-x 6 alex alex 4096 Jun 22 15:43 Videos /mnt/BACKUP_DRIVE/media drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jun 23 12:23 media /mnt/USER_DATA/media1

    Small bug in setup wizard

    Hi I'm just going through the setup of a new Emby server on my Synology DS918+. The package installed just fine but while going through the setup wizard I noticed the dropdown for adding a folder to my media library didn't work. After selecting one of the folders on my NAS it just closes the dropdown without selecting the chosen folder. Not a big problem as I could just enter the path manually but I thought I'd let you know

    Question about EPG

    Hi Everyone, I'm struggling to understand how the guides work with the channel map. My provider gives an XMLTV file which I added as a guide and it works perfectly, but they only provide 1 day of data, so I was hoping to map some of the channels using Schedules Direct. I added SD and mapped one of the channels (it is now mapped to both guide sources), but it isn't populating. Are we meant to be able to map multiple guide sources to a single channel? If not, is there a way to in-map the channel from the XMLTV source?
  14. Hi guys, I hope someone can help. I’ve successfully downloaded and installed the Emby App on my Samsung tv model UE32F4510AKXXU, using the ‘develop’ log in. So far so good. But when I try to launch it for the first time, to enter the server and port details, the tv screen flickers and then the tv exits the smart hub and returns to freesat programmes. I’ve tried the classic turn tv on/off and deleting then reloading the app with no joy. Also tried changing fron develop login to my own account, didn’t work either. Any suggestions?

    My Emby Server setup

    Hello everybody! Since a long time ago I wanted to share my server setup in this awesome forum, sorry for my english in advance . In my university residence some years ago everybody was constantly asking for external HDD's to share movies and tv shows, so one day I wondered what could I do to make this sharing simpler. After using Plex for several years I switched to Emby cause Plex added a 100 users limit share and we were +-120 users. I rented a SoYouStart Opteron Server with 6Tb of storage in order to make Emby accesible outside the residence's LAN. Everything was perfect but we were (

    Client setup question

    I recently setup Emby Server for use with Kodi. After some messing around I have got done right I believe. It seems stable so I want to move on to setting up the clients. I have tried searching for instructions but I can't seem to find any step by step procedure. Might be I don't know exactly what I am looking to search for terminology wise. I have been using XBMC/Kodi for year with MySQL and client setup is pretty straight forward via advancedsettings.xml and this makes client setup a breeze, it is done in seconds. I am using Xios DS boxes for clients running a linux build of XBMC/Kod

Version 3.0.5786.0 is now available for download. Update Now Please shutdown the server and update manually. The problem is that if I follow the link it sends me back to the instructions to install the QPKG (as I did)!!!! So how do I upgrade? M
  20. I am having an issue with the installation wizard. I am able to install the server on my home server without any issues and it works fine. Unfortunately, I am unable to get through the wizard to change settings or preferences. When I get to the opening page, the language selection page, (Picture Attached), It does not allow me to chose a language as there are no languages to chose from. The drop down menu is empty. I have tried Chrome, Firefox and IE, all the most up to date versions and all the same result. The only difference between them is the drop down box is larger in Firefox than Ch

    Wizard install not progressing

    Hi Folks. I've searched around the forums and can't find anything similar so hoping someone can help or direct me approritaly. I'm installing Enby on a Mac Mini (2014). Install has gone ok and the wizard started as expected. The issue arises at the Configure Settings\metadata page (see page below).When I select "Next", nothing happens. Or rather an icon seem to flash (very quickly) but the Wizard does not progress any further. I have tried a reinstall. No change and Previous setting remain in place. I have also tried using both Safari and Chrome. Still no luck. I did notice that on the

I cannot get the server running - having installation issues in the setup, which apparently have no solution or suggestions (see link to yesterday's post)... yesterday's post. I used to have Windows 7 stand-alone with older Media Browser - which worked great. But I now have Windows 8.1 without Media Center (little drive space on the new htpc computer, nor do I want to pay for it). Anyway, since I have Windows 8.1 for client-side, and Vista for server-side, can I somehow use the old Media Browser without Media Center? Or better yet... Is there a

When I go to click on the Plus sign for Media Location, it just highlights blue, but does nothing. I have tried this from Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge (new Explorer). Has anyone else experienced this? Would this be an Emby problem, a brows

    Emby Web Wizard Never Finishes

    I managed to get the FreeBSD version of Emby installed in a jail on a 9.3 version of NAS4Free. However, once I got it started and ran the web-based wizard it gets to the Configure Settings screen and no matter what options I choose it never goes any further. Clicking the 'Next' button on this screen just puts a little spinney icon on the screen for a few seconds and then nothing.Trying to go to the /web/index.html page just starts the wizard over again. I have the server logs attached below, there are several errors but nothing that I understand. I am unable to do anything myself past this poi
