    Emby + Locast = Awesome

    UPDATE: Locast2plex is still in beta and the developers are constantly making updates and improvements. To see the latest information refer to their GitHub page. They have recently updated to 0.5x beta which has changed the set-up instructions (basically they have now require the creation of an config.ini file in the set-up directory). It's pretty straight forward and they include the text within the readme. https://github.com/tgorgdotcom/locast2plex/blob/master/README.md I recommend using the "Command Line" set-up first so you can verify that it is operational, then if you want to automate the process create a Windows Service with NSMM. They are also working on updating the code to work with the most current release of Python 3.8, until they are complete you will need to use Python 2.7 -Logan I saw the Locast Integration post in the Feature Request forum and decided to give it a try. https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/68679-locast-supportintegration/ I Love it! This really solves my issues with poor Local TV reception. I live on the edge a large metro area and have spotty reception that causes my Hauppauge Quad TV tuner to freeze on occasion…this really hurts the overall experience. Using Locast2Plex has solved all of my issues and brought the Emby experience almost back to the glory days of Windows Media Center For those not familiar with Locast2Plex here is what it does for me: · All OTA Local Broadcast Stations are now streamed (for me 35 Channels) · HD quality streams (1280 x720p for my streams, but varies by your Locast feed) · Up to 4 Concurrent streams · Record LiveTV · Pause LiveTV How to set-up Locast2Plex: Use this post as a guide - https://github.com/tgorgdotcom/locast2plex/issues/33 Subscribe to Locast (Donation of at least $5 monthly) https://www.locast.org/ Get the lasted Python 2.7x build https://www.python.org/downloads/release/python-2718/ Install it the Directory of your choice, but make it easy, you may have to navigate to that directory by Command Prompt. (I suggest close to the Root) Get the latest Locast2Plex build https://github.com/tgorgdotcom/locast2plex Unzip it in Directory of your choice Get the latest version of FFmpeg https://ffmpeg.org/download.html Move the ffmpeg.exe file to the locast2plex directory you created Get the prerelease build 2.2.4-101 of NSSM https://nssm.cc/download Install in Directory of your choice, but make it easy... Run NSSM using the steps outlined in the post linked above. If everything goes as planned you should get a "Installed Service Successfully" prompt If not you will need to use the Command prompt to setup Locast2Plex - refer to the Readme file at GitHub for Locast2plex...some debugging may be required Start the Locast2plex service using the "Run" - services.msc command Add Locast2plex as a tuner in Emby Select HDHomeRun as TV Source type Input the Tuner IP Address you used during set-up (don't forget the port#) Add TV Guide data for OTA TV for your Locast area Map Channels (If required) Enjoy!
