Just coming off a day or so of research on the topic, I am wondering whether this setup would work. I have no windows boxes in my network, so all of the existing PVR stuff doesn't apply (and I have no real interest in trying the Tvheadend "beta" that's floating around out there, unless it's nearly bulletproof by now)... Does anyone have any experience with this setup? Basically I'm thinking I would have MythicalLibrarian (no idea how well it works, just came across it an hour ago) do the meta lookup and naming, stick it into my existing Emby TV directory with the proper folder structure/naming convention, and let Emby scan, handle the indexing and serve it up. Would I then be able to use the standard MythTV plugin for Kodi to watch Live stuff, and rely on Emby/Emby Plugin to handle watching recorded stuff? Conceptually I feel like this would work, but I'd like some feedback. Keep in mind, this needs to be 100% wife friendly.
Hello, trying to see if anyone else has attempted something similar or if there is another better method. Since emby supports path substitution, is it possible to setup a cron/task to create the show names using something like mythlink.pl that are zero-byte in size to a directory Emby can use and then use path substitution to point to the real file. The problem I see is that emby will still look for the name of the zero-byte file created when doing path substitution. If it is possible to trim off part of it (the real show name) and leave the remainder the numeric name mythtv creates the file as then it should work. This part however would need a bit of emby support to do. e.g.: Mythtv records a show (call it Survivor): 1091_2015032302010.mpg (located in /var/mythtv/recordings) cron job runs creating the following in /storage/RecordedTV/Survivor_1091_2015032302010.mpg zero-byte file (i.e. empty file with .mpg extension) (Hopefully emby can organize by the name now) Using emby's path substitution, selecting /storage/RecordedTV/Survivor_1091_2015032302010.mpg would play /var/mythtv/recordings/1091_2015032302010.mpg after removing the name part (Survivor_) Is there anyway something can be done to do this? Thank you.
