  1. Hi All I cant seem to get the new channels to my Emby server? (I even removed the tuner but then I couldn't make it recognize the HDHomerun plugin from the enigma2 sat box?, So luckily I had a backup I could restore Emby back) The EPG by XML is loading fine! And the mapping to the new channels are done in Emby also fine! I mapped 48 channels in total: But the Guide is not refreshed with any of the new channels? Can anyone tell me what files to delete to force a udate? The TV channels are in the right order and play perfectly! But all icons
  2. hi, using emby 4.0.2 and using the xtream-editor service to sort my M3U + XML (EPG) from them. But emby is not able to get the XML correct, Error Log: 2019-01-19 09:21:02.886 Info App: xmltv path: https://xtream-editor.com/en/get/epg/ID 2019-01-19 09:21:02.886 Info App: Downloading xmltv listings from https://xtream-editor.com/en/get/epg/ID 2019-01-19 09:21:02.886 Info HttpClient: GetTempFileResponse url: https://xtream-editor.com/en/get/epg/ID 2019-01-19 09:21:04.067 Error App: Error adding metadata *** Error Report *** Version: Command line: /system/EmbyServer.dll
  3. Hi everyone. I use TinyMediaManager to do all of my metadata. I happen to move my files around a lot based on my own organizational madness, lol. This would KILL Emby's collections method. I switched over from Plex a few days ago and this was maddening because I was used to using tags. So I wrote an export template for TinyMediaManager that exports a list of movies in xml form. I wrote my template to conform to Emby's collection.xml scheme and placed the xml in a "CollectionName [boxset]" folder in the Collections folder. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it worked. So, I can rea
  4. Hey all! I am new to EMBY (from Plex) and have been using it for the past few days totally fine! I have an IPTV M3U setup which is my main tv source now, and I tied in their XML to get all the channel data. It worked great for a few days and now the guide is completely empty. I spoke to a friend who told me I had to fetch/get the new data. I went to their site and downloaded the XML file to my computer and pointed Emby to this xml file on my machine. I refreshed the Guide Data and just nothing appears! I have the full channel list, but no actual show information in the timeline guide. I

    EPG123 - Now provides XMLTV data

    It's in beta testing at the moment. If you are frustrated with somewhat complicated setup of the various XLMTV programs out there or perhaps you would like a GUI? I highly recommend EPG123: http://epg123.garyan2.net/ The beta is discussed here: http://www.thegreenbutton.tv/forums/viewtopic.php?f=99&t=11525 The primary focus for EPG123 has been getting reliable, accurate data into WMC and it does this very well and very easy. He has also built some channel management stuff for WMC in this beta for those that are still using it. Take a look and see what you think, if you li
  6. Hi, I use XML files (xmltv.xml) generated using the zap2epg python script to map my channels. It works great for all channels except I'm running into an issue with ABC EPG data. It seemed to be working fine, but it appears that something in the XML file for ABC, maybe it's a special character that is causing a problem with SQ lite and the library.db file, I don't know. I have attached the xmltv.xml and embyserver.txt files. I pulled out just what I believe should be needed. When looking at the guide through the Emby client, doesn't matter if I'm using the Fire Stick TV, my phone

    Actors Metadata not Refreshing

    Hi All, I'm not sure if this may be a bug or not (happy to provide logs if needed), but my actors metadata is not refreshing/displaying after running the Refresh People scheduled task. Images seem to be working fine, but not the metadata. I understand that these are now stored in the database from reading another post & no longer in the metadata folder, but I have mine as xml in the People folder along with the images. I have the Emby XML plugin installed to support (I assume this is needed?), but the only way I can seem to get these to display is doing a search from within Emby Th
  8. Hi, I have a music video folder in my library, this contains folders for the artists with the video files in it. No I have enabled the nfo and the xml reader for this folder: So far I've created a folder.xml file for the artist metadata (with LocalTitle, SortTitle and Description in it), but as I'm trying to move to nfo files, I enabled also the nfo saver for music videos: While this works without problems for the video files, there is no nfo created for the artist folder, even if I edit and save the metadata. So this is, what a folder might look like: As
  9. Hi, I'm creating all metadata by myself, I used to use MetaBrowser but now switched to EMM. So now, I've changed from using movie.xml files to movie.nfo files. For 3D movies, I have a tag <format3d> in the xml file (HSBS, HTAB, etc) that ws auto created by MetaBrowser, which works with xml files. But if I insert the same tag into the nfo file, it seems to be ignored, the server doesn't show that the file is 3D, the Format3D field in the information is empty and I have to edit the information in emby manually. Is this a bug or is there a different 3D tag for nfo files?
  10. Hi everyone, Currently using Version (had to revert back from Beta's that were doing weird stuff with rendering the dashboard) Not sure if anyone else has had this by Emby seem to no longer be interested in reading my MetaBrowser .xml files that are in my Movie and TV directories, I reckon one of the last Beta's may have had a funny turn but I have some content that was all fine before but now no longer have any details and because they are not on IMDB etc... there's no online content to pick up. Is Emby no longer reading xml's by design? Do I need to switch to .nfo's or do I

    Metadata Savers Option

    Emby no longer reads metadata from a xml file? Only nfo files can be used now? This has changed sometime in the last month I think. If you go to Server Manager > Library > Metadata and locate Metadata Savers option, only nfo is available now? This is no good, where did the xml option go? The main reason I choose to go with xml is Media Center Master creates the metadata in xml. I like that because I can manipulate the synopsis for example: "Former cop Brian O'Conner is called upon to bust a dangerous criminal and he recruits the help of a former Miami street racer who has a chance to

    no guide info

    I have an HDHR T1 that required WMC and serverWMC to get running in Emby. I can currently browse the channels directly and watch them via chromecast on my tv, which is awesome, however I cannot get either Schedules Direct or zap2xml to populate my guide, it shows all my channels, but there's no program data, and the channel mapping list is blank. I succesfully downloaded xml data from tvguide.com, so I know the data is there, but even pointing emby to that file on my server doesn't fix anything. Any help is very much appreciated. Log.txt

    XML Saver Plugin

    Hello, I know I'm probably missing something extremely simple here but where is the XML Saver plugin? I remember it was there but I don't see it anymore. Thanks Josh
  14. I remember I could edit a movie's last played date to anything i like, but I can't seem to find that option anymore. Has it been removed? Or is it because I use .xml instead of .nfo for my metadata?

    Change from XML to NFO

    As it seems that XML support is dying out in Emby, what is the best way to change over to NFO support ?? Do I change the METADATA settings to use NFO, stop EMBY, delete all XML files, start EMBY and run a LIBRARY scan ?? Thanks.
  16. So, I was looking around the Plug-in page on my server just to see what was new and I saw the Xml Metadata plug-in. A while back, I decided to use NFO when I could - but not completely sure why and I am open to changing. So, I am curious about this plug-in. Specifically 2 questions: 1. How is this different than picking "Emby Xml" as a metadata saver and prioritizing it over my NFOs? Specifically, what does the plug-in do that Emby doesn't do already? 2. I had to have chosen NFO for a reason. Maybe because it would integrate with other tools/platforms? Regardless, my question is why w

    Taglines issue

    Emby is not reading taglines written by MCM and doing a none or local refresh removes taglines from xml. And doing a refresh isn't populating them. Can't get Identify to populate it either. If I manually enter Tagline in Metadata Manager they stay in metadata. Example of tag from MCM <Tagline>Ted is Coming.</Tagline> <Taglines> <Tagline>Ted is Coming.</Tagline> </Taglines> Example written by Emby <Taglines> <Tagline>Ted is Coming.</Tagline> </Taglines> Started looking at this around 17:30.
  18. I'm running into an issue scanning my library. I typically scrap my data with Media Center Master...with the following formats checked. I'm attaching file examples. hmm odd that i can't upload NFO files. server-63580784722.txt 03X05 - The Usurper.xml 03X05 - The Usurper.zip
  19. I've run into a problem with the metadata that is stored in the individual TV Series files - every single one of them is just a blank XML. Checking timestamps, all of the files were last modified on June 12th (about 3 weeks ago), but I cannot confirm that the files had any content at that time. The last time I actually looked them was 2 months ago when I last tried to organize my newly recorded TV episodes. They were definitely not blank at that time. I don't remember specifically changing anything at that time that would have forced a refresh of the metadata. The individual episode XM
  20. Hi, can some one help me? - Is there a way to media browser to import the metadata from a ".xml", if so, how would it be? (I need this becouse I had organized my movie files to Media Browser 2.0 a long time (in 2011) ago and I'm from Brazil, so I need information in Portuguese, and I made all the work back then , to do all again will be a pain. - Another question, supose my movies are on the "C:\Movies\" Folder, but some time from now i cange it to "D:\Movies" or under an server, how can I mantain the same metadata's? I don't want to loose all the work. Thank you very much

    Movie.xml & Auto Boxsets

    Just a quick questions...I decided to use this plug-in and moved away from the old box sets folder structure. So far only a few have showed up, and from what I found from searching the forum is that probably because of the old Movie.xml files. Some of the ones I have are from a number of years ago. Do need to manually refresh each movie, or is a better option for this to work faster? Thanks guys.
  22. MB-3.0.5434.27057 MCM-2.12 can media browser amend movie.xml files created by MCM generally? it seems that mb is unable to add TmdbCollectionName and TMDbCollectionId to movie.xml created originally by MCM steps to reproduce. 1. fetch movie with MCM (folder and files renamed to standard, movie.xml created) 2. copy movie into MB collection/rescan library. 3. MB is not aware that film is member of tmdb collection, no tmdb collection info in webclient or movie.xml alternatively a. delete xml from movie and rescan b. xml with tmdbcollectionid now present. anyone know
  23. I want to scorch the earth with all XBMC media knowledge and import the info from Media Browser. I only use XBMC for Pseudo tv in the living room. I use Media Browser everywhere else, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to get my xml/nfo data exported from Media Browser and import it into XBMC. I can find the opposite instructions, but even when I remove my movies from XBMC and clean the library, every time I add the movies folder back and set the scraper to scan locally it always re imports my old XBMC metadata. I have options set in the Media Browser web ui to save metadata as a

    XML vs XBMC

    There is now a choice between two different meta-data formats--is there an advantage to switching from XML to XBMC?
  25. MB3 currently doesn't support the following folder structure... [\org{0, n}] [\artist\{0,1}] [\org {0,n}] \album where org=organisational subfolder {0,n}= zero to many instances []=optional Could such support be added, or alternatively could an xml tag/file be recognised by mb3 to treat organisational folders as organisational and NOT as artists/albumartists. eg M:\Music\Soundtracks\Blade Runner\Tracks.mp3 M:\Music\Soundtracks\Top Gun\Tracks.mp3 M:\Music\Soundtracks\Jungle Book\Tracks.mp3 Soundtracks is detected (shown in dashboard) as an albumartist and artist.xml is
