I'd like to have a possibility to have Emby display an unavailability page between certain times. So for example, if an admin wants to shutsdown their storage between midnight and 9am that Emby gives an unavailable page instead of having to shut down and start up Emby with a Windows Task which completely shuts down the Emby server. This could be expanded to having this per library so if a library aren't available, instead of an eternal spinning wheel when clicking on this, have an unavailable page
So for a little while I have been having issues playing movies, they will play for a few minutes then stop and the server will physically shutdown requiring a manual reboot. This does not seem to happen with tv shows but only movies. I also cannot get it to stop transcoding everything. I have a samsung smart tv 2014 running the emby app. I have also tried casting from an android phone and tablet to a chromecast or to the tv directly but all result in transcoding. I even tried using a ps4. I've attached the logs of the most recent incident but every movie I have tried to play recently does the same thing. ServerLog1.txt ServerLog2.txt TranscodingLog.txt
Some observations that should be fixed. I have Emby Server installed as a Windows Service: -When updating Emby Server, setup automatically starts the Emby Server application (try icon) instead of the Windows service. If it is installed as a service, it should trigger the service to start instead. -In the Emby Server web UI, I only see a "Shutdown" button and no "Restart" button. A restart button to call on the service to restart would be very nice so all admins can restart Emby Server if there is problems. Presently, only I (server administrator) can get into the Windows services panel and tell the Emby Server service to start or restart.
One of the great features of MBS is the ability to manage the server from a browser and therefor not have to work on the host directly (anyone have a mouse, keyboard and monitor handy?). One feature that would be useful would be the ability to shutdown/restart the host itself. I don't have the server powered on 247, so the ability to shutdown the host from the dashboard with be advantageous. Another helpful feature would be to have an integrated VNC client (or similar) so you could launch a remote desktop session straight from the dashboard. This would go far in being able to manage the host itself from the one location. BTW, the progress made the server and the various clients is greatly appreciated round these parts. Thanks, Andy
