  1. I have Emby Server running on a Windows 10 computer with an HDHomeRun Prime tuner on my LAN. Invariably, when I use my phone to watch live tv (even briefly) with a WIFI connection to the LAN, the HDHomeRun tuner doesn't release when I'm finished. Android apps have always had a nasty habit of hanging around when they are no longer being used actively. On my phone, I've tried closing the app using "close all" but the tuner is not released. I've also tried doing a "force stop" of the app and that doesn't release the tuner either. I've only found two ways to release the tuner and neither are an acceptable solution: 1) turn the HDHomeRun tuner off and back on, or 2) stop and restart the Emby Server in Windows. This is problematic if I happen to be recording live tv on another tuner. Is there an easy way in Emby Server to identify and "kill" the android client connection to release the tuner?
  2. I've been watching live TV using the Emby App on my Kindle Fire HD 8. I have an HDHomeRun Prime 3-tuner network tuner. (I was not knowingly trying to record live TV while watching a program on the tablet.) I cannot find a clean or obvious way to close the Emby App and automatically release the tuner on the fire tablet. When I finish watching a program on live TV, I exit the app, go to the main screen, then I show recent apps. Emby appears as a recent App and I close the App. However, this does not release the tuner. I suspect that the tuner continues to send content to my Emby Server system disk until the disk is almost full, or until the Emby Server is stopped and restarted. A few days ago I received a notification that the system disk on my Emby server machine was almost full. Approximately 20 gigs of unwanted streaming video had apparently accumulated somewhere on the system disk. I rebooted the desktop computer (which automatically shutdown and restarted the Emby server). Ths released the HdHomerun Tuner that would not reset. The missing free space reappeared shortly after I rebooted. I looked for help in the MediaBrowser Wiki (under Live TV) and read that the network tuner status could be viewed by opening the server Dashboard and navigating to Live TV. There is also supposed to be a button to "reset the tuner for troubleshooting." The tuners are present on my server Dashboard but the tuner reset button is not. (See attached MediaBrowser Wiki.JPG) My Live TV status looks like the second attached file (Tuner Status.JPG). I know that log files are normally a prerequisite for troubleshooting a problem. However, I'm not sure there is a way to enable debugging on the Fire TV Emby App, and I'm not sure which log files on the Emby server would be helpful.
