  1. I'm having the issue mentioned in the title. Emby Server x64 Portable on Win 10 1803. Emby Theater 3.0.5 on Win 7 x64 This does not happen on the Web App, iOS devices or ET on rPi, Just on the Windows 7 ET. Normally between 1 and 2 minutes the file just restarts back to the beginning again Last happened around 20:29 tonight Logs: https://www.dropbox.com/s/eivx960s4khhzre/embyserver.txt?dl=0
  2. Suddenly the Emby Media Server seems to have a problem. Both my Emby apps (Windows 7 Emby Theater and Android app) say, "Connection Failure: We're unable to connect to the selected server right now. Please ensure it is running and try again." On the server (Windows Server 2016 Standard), I right-click on Emby Server in the task tray and click "Restart Emby Server," but Emby Tray says, "Unable to restart server." In the Task Manager on the server, I can kill the Electron processes (two of them) or embytray.exe [Details tab] (two of them), and start the server again fro
  3. Hi there, This might seem like a little thing, but it's huge for people like me who use media controls on their desktop keyboard (Play/Pause, Stop, Next, Previous, Volume Up, Volume Down, Mute, etc) all day long while they work to pause music playback when the phone rings, resume playback, quickly increase or decrease volume, skip tracks, etc. I do these all day long probably a hundred times a day. My keyboard media controls sort of work with Emby Theater in Windows 7, but not completely. Here's what I've observed: The volume control (up, down, mute) seems to work flawlessly. Play/P

    Emby Theater Windows 7 Connection Failure

    I am attempting to connect to my emby server and am having an issue with Emby server. I can connect to the server via web browser and via Kodi but I am testing a new setup and would like to give Emby theater a shot. Regardless if i put in my server IP address or DNS address it says connection failure. I use https and port 8920. Also I used a self signed certificate, will that cause an issue with Emby Theater? I am running this on a Windows 7 desktop. Tested this on same network, outside network, via wireless and ethernet. Opened up ports in firewall too. However it does work via web browse
  5. Hi all I'm in the process of coming back to emby from Plex and had a question about live TV and recording TV. I'm doing a clean install and need to install the driver package for the 2250 - yes I know it's older. There are 2 versions, the standard windows drivers and the media center drivers. Any idea which needs to be installed to mesh with emby correctly, so I can use it as a pvr? I've also seen mixed reports of being able to use emby for livetv, but not with the 2250. Any workarounds? Thanks for the help.
  6. I have a Windows 7 machine, fully updated, running on an i3-3225 with 4GB of Ram, and HD Graphic 4000. I'm been using Kodi for years and never had issues with anything except some of my most recent 4K files that are ~30GB for 90min of video. I am trying to switch to Emby and get rid of Kodi. Per my previous post, Emby Theater Won't Load on Windows 7 Machine, I had some issues loading Emby, but a change to "app.disableHardwareAcceleration();" allows me to load Emby and browse, but I cannot play any videos.
  7. Hello, I recently installed Media Browser 3 Beta on my Windows 7 Ultimate Media Center PC. My Windows 7 MCE PC is fully patched and fully updated as well. I have ran Media Browser 3 in the past and it worked lovely. However, after recently installing the beta, and I have tried the non beta additions as well, I have noticed that Media Browser does not show up as a menu choice on my Media Center Menu. I am currently running Media Browser Server for Windows Beta (v3.0.5464.40000). Can someone tell me what I need to do in order to get Media Browser to show up as a choice in my Media Center Men

    Advise me....

    I've been running WMC with MB2/MB3 on a windows 7 machine for years. Love the setup and have been very pleased. I stuck with windows 7 because I was using some DMA-2100 extenders and knew 8 required a move to xbox. Thanks to the live TV implementation and a few other things I have decommissioned my last 2100. I'm either chromecast or xbox now. This machine is now due for a refresh. I've messed with sharks codecs, had the concurrent RDP hack installed which MS has been killing lately, and a few other misc things that I just want to wipe out and start fresh. My question is do I stick with 7 sinc
  9. My Setup: HTPC (Living Room): Win7 SP1 x32, Media Browser Classic (No Codecs/Filters) PC (Office): Win7 SP1 x64 Media Browser Server, Video collection. Network: Netgear WNDR3700v3 So far the HTPC plays all the videos. It's a fresh install with windows default codecs. One of the problems is that there is no sound from the center channel (3.1 system ie: L, R, C, LFE). It seems the sound is only through left and right speakers and sub. I've configured the speakers Windows Media Center for 5.1 in the General Settings, however it did not fix the problem. Is there a speaker setup for Classic? A

    Upgrade Best Practices

    My MB3 server is set up perfectly on my Win 7 (3gb RAM, 1x Intel Core 2 Duo E6750, 1x Intel NIC) box but the problem is resources. I "rescued" a server from work that has (32gb RAM, 2x Intel E5520, 2x Broadcom NIC, 4x Intel NIC) running VMware 5.5.0. I plan on building out a VM to run Windows Server 2012 R2. So my question is - What are the best practices for migrating my current MB3 settings. Is there a back up process I should do? Should I just say to hell with it and start from scratch? Would appreciate any assistance you can help with. Thanks.
  11. Hi all, Random question here, but I've been trying to decide recently if I should make the jump to Windows 8.1 or not. I don't really have a good reason to, but I've been thinking about giving it a try. After doing some research on the subject, I haven't really found any compelling reason whether I should, or should not switch, so I thought I'd ask some fellow MediaBrowser's what their take was on the subject. I don't want the cost of a new operating system to sway people's opinions either, this is just subject to people's preferences on the two OS's, and not whether it's worth the
  12. Hi, I'm looking for a suggestion on building (or repurposing) a machine. Most of the ones that I've read have been general purpose machines for a lot of things. I'm really just looking for a machine that will be able to run MB3 server and transcode and stream up to a max of 8 different movies at the same time. There will be other programs running but minor ones. Is Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 preferred? Does it matter? Clients 2-3 MBT or MBC on Local LAN - Direct Play - No transcoding 2 - Local LAN Roku 3 - Local Wireless IOS 1 - Remote Roku 2 - Remote IOS I know these might no
