    Live TV Channel Groups

    It would be great to be able to configure channel groups in LiveTV, which can be selected in the guide view (maybe as tabs) so that we can more quickly navigate to preferred channels using the d-pad. Perhaps start with Favorites by default, but be able to add custom groups (similar to collections) which we can add channels to (Network, Premium, Basic Cable, Kids, News etc.).

    LiveTV resolution issue (m3u)

    Hello, just discovered this program and it seems really awesome in general - I'm now trying to see if it fits my requirements, but I've hit an issue with playing a Livestream via LiveTV m3u tuner. The source livestream runs in 720p and VLC plays it back at the correct resolution, however the emby player only reports a playback resolution of Auto - 480p (visually it seems even worse than 480p). I've included the ffmpeg-transcode log of one of my attempts. I've tried to find settings in the server that pertain to my issue but couldn't find anything (most of the encoding settings seem to be recording-related). Would be very thankful for your help, I'd love to get this working and finally have a solution that actually works. ffmpeg-transcode-b8905aaa-dbdb-4962-b790-bb24b9148b88.txt

    IPTV not great on emby

    Hej Everybody Finally I fired up my emby server. It has a lot of quirks im trying to work out. I will take them one at a time. IPTV or LIVE TV. Because the IPTV add-on doesn't do what it is suppose to. (It doesn't accept m3u files) WHAT did i do... 1: Added the m3u link in LIVETV in the settings. 2: LIVE tv appears on the home screen. Web interface etc. Fine. Its working. Now the problem is that you have 10K channels and no way to sort them. 3: Brain burst. "Collections". 4: I add the channels i like to one collection. Give each channel a logo. Spending hours on it. Works great. 12-24-36 hours later my "IPTV collection" is gone, all the channels has lost their images. Why ? Is still appears under /var/lib/data/collections. But is not shown in emby. I can add them all again. spend hours and it all happens again gone. "Its not a bug, its a feature." Well im not sure what to say about that. Any advise would be appreciated.

    Live TV Playback Frame Freezing

    Hello, Recently I've been noticing while playing back live TV from my hdhomerun and hdhomerun prime that while playback is happening it occasionally freezes on a frame and keeps playing audio; it just gets stuck on a frame and resumes playing audio. If I pause/play the frame remains frozen - if I fast forward then hit play it'll sometimes recover where it will pick up just before the frozen frame was encountered, but it seems like the time bar is all wrong with where it's at in the stream.... I've encountered this while watching live TV as well with recorded TV and I do have a captured stream where I can reliably hit the frozen frame issue I'm describing. I've tried the alternative transcoding option that's available while playing the stream, but it still freezes... This is a bit tricky to diagnose since it seems like some bad frames are getting to the Roku and it's causing it to freeze on the bad frame. If I play the same recording on the web client I don't get the issue happening either... I'm hoping there can be a fix for this since it seems to be happening more frequently as time grinds on. If there's something more I can try to provide with this I'll try to help, but as of right now I'm not sure what would be valuable information to provide...

    Issue with LiveTV

    Edit: It works when i turn Emby on my TV, but for some reason it does not work when i want to use emby on my laptop. Any ideas? Hello all, i have tried to use liveTV, and it does not play any channels. I used this feature in the past (3-4 months ago). Back then everything was working just fine. I even configured emby to record a movie to disk, which was amazing. I tried to play a channel today and there is just circle spinning, thats all. I tried using web browser/chrome, then i used on my windows emby premier , also same thing. Is there anything someone can help me with ? LEt me know if i can add some logs. Not sure which one to check. I clicked somewhere , and found some log : I also tried to give the playlist url with additional : ?type=m3u_plus&output=m3u8 at the end , but this has changed nothing and i still can't play anything . In the TV / VLC i tried to open it, and everything there is working just fine. Any idea if something has changed in Emby , or if there is some current bug that does not allow to use liveTV? log part:: 2020-05-02 13:14:11.428 Info HttpServer: HTTP Response 500 to Time: 42ms. 2020-05-02 13:14:17.408 Info HttpServer: HTTP POST UserAgent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) EmbyTheater/3.0.11 Chrome/80.0.3987.137 Electron/8.1.0 Safari/537.36 2020-05-02 13:14:17.412 Info MediaInfoService: User policy for embysvr.

    hauppauge live tv

    hola mi dispositivo hauppauge Sintonizador de TV digital, no muestra contenido en mi servidor emby alguna configuración especial soy nuevo trabajndo con Emby
  8. Hello, I was having an issue with Live TV where the stream would stop unexpectedly. I tracked the issue down to the drive where the transcoding files are going, filling up. I have noticed that if I am watching through the web app and go back or close the browser, many times the ffmpeg process won't close. I have also noticed that even if I stop the ffmepg process(es), the .TS file still continues to increase (which makes no sense to me). I am using one SiliconDust HDHomeRun Prime.

    Question about liveTV recording

    Hi I have a question about the livetv buffer. If I start watching livetv and let say 10 minutes later, I hit the record button. The recording start at the moment the button is pushed and the content of the livetv buffer that can go back 10 minutes ago is not saved in the recording like other dvr do. Is this the expected behavior? Does this feature on your todo list? Thank you

    Xmltv Enhancer

    I’d like there to be an option for the tvguide xmltv to be enhanced using tvdb or moviedb data. Also useful would be to tag the scheduled recordings with a tvdb Id so it fetches the correct metadata and matches shows more easily.
  11. Hi Trying out Emby. Coming from Kodi. I have a paid iptv subscription that is working in kodi and vlc but not in Emby. I have Premiere. Running Emby in docker on an unraid server. The channels are listed but no stream is displayed. "Playback Error No compatible streams are currently available. Please try again later or contact your system administrator for details. I have tried numerous of http headers. One thing that looks suspicous in log: "System.Exception: System.Exception: GetVideoEncoder: Unknown codec specified: ''" m3u file looks like this: http://foviptv.link:8080/user/password/12598 Have restarted server and reloaded guide data. Deleted TV Sources and added again. Yesterday it worked for a short while but havent since. Would really like this to works since the software in general looks good and is working fine.

    XMLTV playback interruption on change

    Hi All, I have a strange problem since upgrading to Emby 3.5.x.x. The issue is related with the download of EPG via webgrab++, which I did/do regularly every day. It creates a file `guide.xml` which I then load into Emby's TV Guide Data Providers (Emby > LiveTV > XmlTV). This all works fine, and it worked nicely. However, since the upgrade to Emby 3.5.x.x whenever there is a programme change based on EPG (e.g. programme1 | programme 2 | programme 3 | ...), the playback ends at the end of the EPG playback time (i.e. where the | is), resulting the need from the user for restarting the playback. Pre-emby 3.5.x.x this was not the case, the playback just went on, until it has not been stopped (programme1 >>> programme 2 >>> programme 3 >>> etc). Anybody has similar issues?

    Emby server become unresponsive

    Hi I'm watching more livetv these days and emby server become unresponsive maybe once every day or two. It happens only when I watch livetv (chase play), when I'm watching a recording in progress. The client stop with a little message like "stream unavailable" and the server webui is not accessible anymore. To get it back, I need to log on my ubuntu server terminal, stop emby-server service and start it again. From the logs, it looks like ffprobe is throwing errors in a loop. The first Error report is this: System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception (24): Too many open files I attached a partial logs file. Here the info about the server: Intel nuc i5 8th gen with 8GB ram running ubuntu server 18.04 LTS. Emby server HDHomerun Quatro Client: Nvidia shield with emby beta client. Thank you for your help. embyserver-6372327982228510.txt

    Missing Features

    Hello I'm using the app for Roku right now, have not tried my Apple TV yet so this is all relevant to Roku only. The features that are needed are as follows: Favorite a channel in the guide direct tune to a channel if you move too fast through the guide it freezes and you have to back out of the app entirely, there needs to be a 'refresh' More sorting options, sometimes i want to sort by name of program since i know what i'm looking for just don't know the channel, likewise need more sorting options overall Please let me know if i just simply overlooked a feature and posted it above. Thanks.

    ExpressVPN and server

    Hello I use ExpressVPN because for some reason comcast blocks me from watching IPTV. I'm not even sure how to configure this for outside access. I have my vpn setup at the router because if i do it just on that computer it gets blocked. Anyone use this vpn and get this working? Thanks. PS I don't think WOW blocks anything so i might try them out after i get this working.

    multiple tuner designations

    Hello I couldn't find anything about this and wanted to ask. Is there a way to designation tuners to do specific things, for example: HDHomerun extend to just do recordings HDHomerun Duo to just tune liveTV This is my dream...i already have an amplified antenna and amplified splitter installed (thanks dish). Thank you
  18. Hi I'm new to emby. My main emby client is a nvidia shield. On the Shield, I can start watching an ongoing recording and skip through commercials perfectly. But that doesn't seem the case with emby theater on Windows. I can start watching an ongoing recording, but the player has a lot of difficulties tracking time. It's really difficult to skip through commercials. i tried the webapp player with the same results. On the android app (not tv), the player shows a length of 0 min and It's not possible to skip through commercials at all. Is it the expected behavior? Or there is something that I'm missing? Thank you
  19. Hi New to Emby, when i see a show i hit record or record series. I wanted to go back and change some setting to that series but I cannot find an easy to modify recording settings. The only way I have been able to is to click on 'upcoming on tv' and then the recording settings becomes available. Is there a better option? Thanks.

    Live TV M3u stops after 30 seconds

    hi, i recently moved to Emby from Plex and one thing that attracted me was the ability to add m3u links or file without the need of an additional software. so i signed up to premiere and it loaded the file perfectly. but when i play a channel, it lasts 30 seconds and it stops and i am not sure what is going on. when i use the same m3u file on vlc or any iptv player, it works perfect. searched through the forum and was adviced to tick something on auto loop but i cannot find that option. any help please? cheers Logs.txt
  22. Hi! I've been running a Dockerized Emby server based on the official Docker image (currently at v4.2.1.0), to be accessed from Roku boxes I have laying about the house, using the BETA Roku app. I also have a TVHeadEnd deployment which is fully functional, which also renders all streams as MPEG-TS container with MPEG2 video and AC3 audio. The Emby server is configured to access TVH using the Emby TVHeadEnd plugin (v1.4.4.0). This has worked flawlessly for months, but now I've noticed that Emby is for some reason transcoding from MPEG2 to H264. While this isn't costing too much, it's not what I want. Plex and other clients are more than happy to play back the MPEG2 video streams without issue. However, Emby is choosing to transcode the stream because "container is not supported". This means that for some reason, Emby - either Roku or Server? - decides it doesn't like the MPEGTS container and requires a "transcoding". The issue here is that the "transcoding" should limit itself to repackaging, since both the audio and video streams are supported by the Roku device(s). As I said, this used to work perfectly in earlier server versions. Sadly, I don't know exactly when this got "broken" (so to speak). I only noticed this accidentally yesterday while showing a friend of mine the "stats for nerds". Can you help me figure out what's wrong? In my mind, if the container is not supported then Emby can definitely repackage the streams as it sees fit - what it shouldn't be doing is transcoding them as this is wasteful and unnecessary. Like I said before, neither Plex nor Roku's UPNP/DLNA application have any issue in playing back the raw MPEGTS/MPEG2/AC3 streams. I'll be happy to provide more details if required. Cheers!

    Live Tv Choose Channel with trackpad get Oops

    When choosing a channel to watch we are getting this error when pressing the trackpad on the channel (which normally takes one to the channel/program info where you can choose channel as a favorite). Oops. Document Not Found on Stack. Maximum call stack size exceeded. We can get around this by pressing the play button instead. Also, while here, and related to the panel. The program schedules do not update when one presses the menu button to go back. This applies to both the favorite screen above (if that works [back once]) and to the channel listing [back twice]. Then if one presses play, the episode isn't available since it's often hours old. Has been this way since we installed emby last spring. I played around with this some and installed emby on a RaspberryPi 4 with 4GB. It was running version emby Had no problem with play functionality described first using the PI.

    Feature Request: Better seeking in in-progress recordings on Roku

    Currently when I'm playing back a live recording on the Roku, I seem to only be able to seek as far as Emby has transcoded in the background. This can be frustrating if I want to seek through the first half-hour or hour of a recording. Would it be possible to change the way Emby handles seeking in ongoing recordings such that it's possible to seek to the middle of the recording and then begin transcoding from there? Thanks!
