OK, have another update to this.

 

I decided to load MB-Classic on the same PC as EMBY-Server.

Using both the Chocolate and Subdued Themes, I had NO ISSUES!!

What the HEL*!

I can only assume that this is a network issue and not EMBY-Server or Classic.

 

ebr, if you have any thoughts (or anyone else) i'd appreciate it!

 

Solidus28, could you tell me if you are running Classic from a seperate PC or the same box that you're running EMBY-Server from?

 

Thanks All.

Separate boxes.  Small HTPC in the living room running Emby Classic, server in my office running Emby Server.  Both wired with Cat6 into a gigabit Buffalo switch.

Are you still having Delay Issues? (I'm assuming you are!)

If so, could you try running MB-Classic on your server and see if you get delays?

I'm also running Cat6 from my server to my htpc via an ASUS gigabit router.

Yep, just tried to enter a tv series.  I can hear the music from the background video (but can't see the background video), but it's just hung on my list of tv series.  I know it will go through in 30 seconds or so.  Not sure how to try it on the server, though.  I'm running Windows Server 2012.

OK, I don't think you can run MB-Classic on 2012. I'm using Win7.

I'm doing some testing on my network. If I come up with anything i'll post it.

Thanks for your help.

To add to my last post, I also had one season in that series that had 0 episodes when it eventually loaded.  Just for kicks, I backed back out to the EHS, went into the settings and unchecked Active Backgrounds, went back to this particular show.  It still delayed ~30 seconds, but now two different seasons had 0 episodes and the one that had 0 previously loaded correctly.  I'll try running Emby Theater on the same PC to see if it experiences any of the delays.  Not sure if that's a good test, but can't hurt :)

Emby Theater seems to work without a hitch.  Entered a dozen or so TV shows and it entered within a second or so, including playing the active backgrounds.  I may actually look more into EmbyT.  For some reason, I believed it couldn't bitstream, but just played Gravity at the Atmos track bitstreamed without issue to my AVR.  I've avoided it simply because of that misconception.  But back to the topic at hand, my network seems to function fine through EmbyT, just not through EmbyC.

OK, i haven't tried EmbyT but I'm already in the process of re-configuring my network.

I'll be back a little later with updates!

Navigating Emby Theater is still pretty snappy, no delays.  I'm having separate issues that seem to occur after playing a movie from ISO then back to MKV, but definitely not the latency I've been intermittently experiencing with Emby Classic.  If it was truly a network issue, I would think that it would impact Theater as well since it's accessing the same server over the same infrastructure.  Hope we can figure out Emby Classic!  Even with these occasional hiccups, still a great piece of software :)

solidus28, I have another test I'd like for you to try if you would.

Can you create a new user-id on the Emby-Server, then go into MB-Classic and log-in under that id.

Use the same Theme and then see if you still have issues.

Also, if you could tell me, on the user-id you log-in with, is it password protected?

Let me know how it goes, ok?

 

I just finished doing a test using a different user-id (i have 4 seperate ones for me and my kids).

I had NO issues using this other id.

 

Thanks.

solidus28, ignore the above request.

I kept testing and am now having the same issue with the other user-id.

I literally just saved the new user on the server :)  I'll stand down.

Sorry bout that. I tested the user and it worked fine.

Then I went back and added a few options to the user and started getting the same issue.

Removed the options, still get the same issue.

This is really starting to tick me off!!!!

solidus28, I have a few questions if you wouldn't mind?

 

Is your media on External HD?

In your Library Setup are you using "Path Substitution"?

Is your Profile password protected?

Are you using "Legacy Browsing"?

Is your media on External HD?

Using a Highpoint 16 port Sata2 Raid card with 15 drives.  There is a RAID1 array of 3tb drives and a separate RAID1 array of 4tb drives.  These were created using the Highpoint card's bios and are shared from Windows 2012 Server. I know the Everyone group has at least Read access, but I can check if that's important.

 

In your Library Setup are you using "Path Substitution"?

Nothing filled out in the Path Substitution section on the server.

 

Is your Profile password protected?

No password on the profile the client uses.

 

Are you using "Legacy Browsing"?

Legacy Browsing is unchecked.

K, 2 more questions.

 

Have you ever checked Legacy Browsing?

Do you have nested TV Series folders, meaning:

example:

Star Trek Collection

 Star Trek

    seasons1, 2, etc.

 DS9

    seasons1, 2, etc.

Voyager

    seasons1, 2, etc.

If I've checked Legacy browsing, it's been a long time.  I honestly don't remember, but definitely not recently.  This is how my library is setup for TV:

 

In Emby Server, I have a media folder setup with a path like this: 

\\servername\mediashare\TV

 

Within that directory, there is a folder for each tv show.  Within each tv show, there are separate directories for each season.  Within each season folder are the individual episode mkv files.  I do not have a "Collection" folder setup for related shows.  In your example, I would have a separate folder under TV for Star Trek, Deep Space 9, and Voyager, mixed in with the rest of my tv shows.

ex:

\\servername\mediashare\TV\Ray Donovan\Season 01

\\servername\mediashare\TV\The Shield\Season 01

\\servername\mediashare\TV\The Shield\Season 02

\\servername\mediashare\TV\Star Trek\Season 01

\\servername\mediashare\TV\Star Trek Deep Space 9\Season 01

\\servername\mediashare\TV\Star Trek Deep Space 9\Season 02

\\servername\mediashare\TV\Star Trek Voyager\Season 01

To go one step further, I did change my episode naming convention last year.  So anything in the last few months is named under the new convention, everything I had prior still has the old naming.  All seems to be recognized fine and metadata collected appropriately.

 

Original Naming Convention

episode # - episode title

01 - Coefficient of Drag

 

More recent naming convention

show name seasonxepisode number - episode title

Community  6x01 - Ladders

OK, thanks for the response.

I'm gonna keep testing things until I hopefully get it figured out.

I'll keep posting here with any updates.

 

I appreciate your help!

Well, did a complete reinstall of both Server and Classic.

No luck.

I am getting a crap load of different errors.

I opened a new thread for the other errors to see if I can get them fixed.

If I can get them fixed, I'll come back to this thread for the delay problems!
