  1. Hey there, Would it be possible to reduce the OSD display time on Android TV.I've been busy putting Fanart in my folders so when I playback I get a nice rotating backdrop,but because the ODI stays on for around 1 minute,I can't see the backdrops.So is there a way to reduce the display time or just disable the cover boxes ? Cheers Vinny
  2. Bonjour à tous, Je viens à vous car j'ai pas mal de soucis de lecture vidéo avec l'application Emby sous AndroidTV. Ces problèmes concernent quasi exclusivement des gros mkv en 4k HDR, c'est à dire que la lecture commence normalement et après 2-3 minutes l'image saccade énormément (pas toujours au même moment), coupe et bien souvent revient mais sans HDR. Et quand je me rend sur mon serveur Emby (c'est un docker sous Unraid) je m’aperçois que le transcodage s'est activé tout seul. C'est d'autant plus étrange que quand je lis ces mêmes fichiers via Kodi ou VLC il n'y a aucuns soucis à sig
  3. Hello friends, first I would like to acknowledge that I have seen a similar topic on the forum but their solution is somewhat not applicable to me as I run emby on android devices and by the fact I'm noob at networking. That said, this the problem: I run emby server on one of my shield tv boxes and access the content on other android devices. So I recently upgraded my router to a new one which has a different host IP ( from After the upgrade the android apps cannot access my emby media. I have tried inputting the server IP manually but this only works with the em
  4. During the setup of the client I selected to use direct paths. After the synchronization it defaults to web streaming. If I look into the settings the direct path option is greyed out. I have the problem with the native Emby client and also with Kodi (via Emby for kodi). My Synology NAS doesn't have a powerfull CPU (DS414), so I used direct path as I think the NFS server is built-in and it would require less CPU then the webstreaming. Secondly, where I live, the movies are not dubbed and we are heavy users of subtitles. That is the reason why I also use Kodi. Kodi has more feat

    Back button behaveor

    I see this a inconsistency, but not necessarily an error. When clicking on the back button in any library or folder, Emby it will first take you to the top left movie or show of the screen, and when pressing back again, it will take you back one screen. On the home screen, when pressing back, it will not take you to the top left, it will give the pop-up asking if you want to leave Emby. If I'm anywhere in the home screen I would expect to be taken to the top left, like on any other screen This is sometimes confusing, as the behavior is different in different screens. Even on the
  6. Is there a way / could there be a way added on Android TV to enact thumbnail scrubbing when "skipping" by default? I am on Shield TV Pro (2019) right now, and I have to click the down arrow to bring up the show overlay before thumbnails show up for scrubbing. If I just simply click left or right, it just skips without showing any thumbnails.
  7. When I run the android TV version of EMBY client, on my Mi Box S device - all the TV shows images disappear, as in the attached images. I noticed that when I switched all the device settings to English, things work fine.
  8. Hi all, I'm looking at switching from Kodi to Emby. We have Kodi running on a smart TV at our house, with videos on a network share. However, we are looking at buying an RV, and want to take our media collection with us on trips but also have access at home. Kodi does not make this easy, which is why I've been looking into the mobile sync features of Emby. What I would like to do is: Run Emby server on a VM on my UnRaid box at the house, which will handle the ripping, transcoding, and storing video to the network shares. Install Android TV on a Raspberry Pi 4 (4GB) with t
  9. I bought the in-app unlock for the AndroidTV app the other day and I am still getting messages about my trail expireing. Now when I select the unlock option in the menu it just gives me an error. I was charged for the purchase and got a confirmation email. I would also like to add that it was a real gut shot to have to buy the app again after already purchasing it for Android.

    Android TV App 4K UI

    Hello, Since the Android TV app is undergoing it's OSD unification, I wanted to throw a request for the UI to be adapted to 4K screens. I know that Android TV has a limitation on the UI for 1080p, but I tried Kodi recently as well as Plex (as well as other Android TV apps such as Molotov) and they have a way to adopt and not have the blurry UI on 4K screens. I really like the Emby app, the simplicity and the speed over Kodi are great, but looking at posters and text it's blurry and regretful to look at on a 4K screen. Here is a topic illustrating the problem, I could provide further pi
  11. Hi there So I bought one of those cheapy Android TV media players to connect to my Emby server (Android 9) from eBay. Seems to run ok, but things aren't quite right. For starters the images in the movie library at vertically stretched, and going into a movie screen shows the file formats, but lacks the options to select the subtitle stream. It also transcodes formats it says it should support, as will as transcoding audio I know my attached receiver does support. I have enabled audio pass through in device system settings. I have tried both the "Emby for Android" and "Emby for Androi
  12. If I use Handbrake "HQ 1080p30 Surround" to encode with default settings the first audio is Stereo and the 2nd Audio is AC3 Passthrough of a 5.1 audio track. Both these appear as options when I choose the resulting file served from emby server on my Sony Bravia Android TV app. Surround sound does *not* get sent to my receiver. When I repeat the encode process with Handbrake but this time delete the Stereo track so there is only one AC3 pass through. This is again correctly identified in the movie selection on the TV and the surround sound arrives at my decoder. ie when the App has no choi
  13. Hi all, thank you for this great product! I wanted to share an annoying issue I run into on the Android TV version of the Emby app when using the live tv mini guide. I hope below describes the issue clearly and I am willing to help wherever I can! Server: Latest stable Linux server docker image on unraid. Emby server version is using Live TV via HDHomeRun Prime (3 tuner) using Emby Guide Data Client: This issue happens in apps that have the mini guide such as Android TV in my case Nvidia shield pro 2020. *I can DM logs if needed but its very easy to repo and consiste
  14. Nvidia Shield 2019 Pro with Android TV The home screen tool bar things. called "Channels" I have one for Emby, "Live TV" It only puts 3 icons there, On Now, Live TV Guide, Recordings. The On Now does not always go to the On Now screen, say if i was in a tv series folder or else where previously, it will just load back to that page and not On Now. Ideally, would like to the list of On Now programs be the "Channels" banner thing on the home screen, so I can just scroll through what is on now on the atv home screen, like i can with the butil in "Channels" live app, or Cha
  15. Hey everyone, has anyone else had trouble with the emby app crashing while playing 4K content on the non-pro 2019 Shield? I've only recently gotten a 4K TV, so the problem is new (otherwise the shield has been working great with 1080p content). My normal setup is: Emby server running an i5-5250U processor with 16GB of RAM (Windows 8.1), connected with a CAT5E cable directly to my TP-Link AC4000 Router. NVidia Shield connected directly to the router with a CAT5E and to my AVR (Sony STR-DH790) with an HDMI 2.1 cable. AVR connected to my TV (Sony X900F) with an HDMI 2.1 cable. I
  16. Good Day, I hope everyone is well, I require some assistance and advice, i have Emby linked to an external server and use it on the following devices: 1) Windows (Emby Theater) 2) Android Phone (Emby for Android) 3) Android TV (Emby for Android TV) when i playback the media on windows it plays perfectly but if i attempt to use my phone or android tv it constantly buffers (even if i reduce the quality). I am using the same internet connection (network) and external server on all devices, Is there a setting i am missing on the android apps which is causing these issues? Your assistance a
  17. Hi Luke, I'm trying XIAOMI MIBOX S android tv box and the amby app is great (better than LG tv app and iOS I think) but I have a volume control issue. The mibox is connected through SPDIF to a sound bar, on all video apps on the box I can control the volume with the mibox controler but not on the emby app ! I tryied to look for an option but I can't find anything. also it seems like there is a sound issue : I noticed that the sound is a littlte bit bad, acute (aigue [FR] ?) are too high / saturated, low seems to be great (but it is maybe because of my sound bar) all parameter
  18. I searched, and despite finding many topics revolving around custom subtitle positioning I'm here to ask about to at least add a hardcoded option to position it within the video frame. I suspect this wouldn't work well with remuxes but with other encodes (where the video frame is filled with the image) this could be useful. I know Plex do this, but they burn subtitles on video to make it work. Is it possible to get some sort of setting on Emby that does this as well? Like, for 1.85:1 videos, the subtitle goes over the border with the top line inside the video frame and the bottom line above th
  19. Hi there, I actually run the EMBY Beta Version on my synology DS916+. Very often i run in a very curious issue. The server transcodes without any need if I start watching on my nvidia shield (EMBY app 1.6.56g) In my opinion I think that this effect happens more often if I changing the audio, e.g. german to english, or changing subtitles. In this case the sub are integrated pgs subs and should be played directly. When I open nerd stats I can see that the transcode is running with the message: "error by direct playing attempt. When I check on the server dashbord, I got the info
  20. Hey guys. I loved the old Fire TV app but am having a hard time adjusting to the new one with "Smooth TV Guide". The channels scroll A LOT slower and it takes me a long time to scroll to the end of my channel list with 100+ channels. Also the category background color (ie Sports, Kids, etc) does not display properly in the new app while scrolling (random things have the blue sports background). The most glaring issue seems to be the fade out/fade in effect the guide does when you stop scrolling. Just thought I'd share my opinion as I thought the old version of the TV guide was pretty damn good
  21. Emby for android tv - Scheduled or event triggered channel updates on android tv oreo channel The Android tv home screen channels in Oreo are a great way to quickly select what to watch right from the Android tv home screen and Emby has a couple of great channels available today. Unfortunately, you have to enter the emby app for the channels to update which loses the advantage of having channels as they are not up to date when you need them, so I would suggest that we add a scheduled task that updates the emby channels or even better, if there is an event that triggers an update when y
  22. HI, Had an interesting one last night. Have just signed up for Google Play Music and saw it on my Shield so had a play with it... Then opened the Emby app and selected a TV show. When I started the show using the double tap on the volume slider (which gives an immediate start instead of going to the detail screen first), I got both the TV show and Google play music playing at the same time. This is repeatable every time. Google play music app does not have a Stop button, just a pause and as far as I can see there is no way to stop the app running. Even after two Shield restarts, Music and T
  23. Hi, I installed the emby server on pine 64 and imported my music(audio) collection into the library. I'm able to successfully play with my android nexus 6 phone, but couldn't from within the emby app on my Android TV (nexus player emby app to be specific). Against each song in the album i see '0.00' for the length of the song. Also I get the error "unable to play audio null" when I try to play a song. I have sent logs from the app, bearing username: curiousgally time of upload: 11:20 PM CST I'm not a paid user and just evaluating emby at the moment. Let me kno

    Artist vs Album Artist

    Is there a way to get the Android TV app to use the ARTIST tag for browsing instead of the ALBUM ARTIST tag? This is a feature that works remarkably well on the web app, and on the Android phone/tablet apps. For some reason however, I am not able to get the Android TV app to allow browsing by the artist tag. I understand that for many casual listeners out there this may seem like a trivial matter, but for music buffs (or in my case....music junkies), the difference between using an artist tag vs album artist tag can be pretty huge; especially, if you listen to genres of music where co
  25. As the title really, thought I would give this system a try since plex is getting ever more annoying, and in general I'm liking it (video playback is very quiet though) apart from this issue with pictures, it will show them and when I click on one of the thumbnail expecting a fullscreen version of the photo all it does is show the picture in the middle left hand side taking up less than an eighth of my tv's screen. Is there any way to change this?
