Hi

 

I would like to limit the simultaneous channels that can be watched in live tv. I have an iptv subscription with 2 allowed simultaneous connections. Now i would like to be able to watch channel a on 3 different devices and channel b on another. This seems to work if i disable the simultaneous stream limit in the live tv settings of the m3u playlist. 

But this also allows for a user to switch to a third channel, which in turn kicks of the user(s) watching the first channel. Is it possible to just limit the number of channels that can be watched simultaneously?

 

Edit: I should probably also mention that i run emby behind xteve. I don't know if this scenario would work if i use my providers playlist directly in emby

Hi.  That's what the simultaneous stream limit is.  Why do you feel this isn't working for you?

Hi ebr.

You're right. I checked again and it seems to be working and doing exactly what i want... When i was trying it out yesterday I got an error message saying that no more compatible streams are available. Then i increased the simultaneous stream limit and it was working... Maybe something got stuck or i accidentally tried a third channel.

If it happens again I'll see if i can find anything in the logs. First time emby user and just setting it up and getting used to it.

Sorry for the confusion 🙂
