You should,maybe, try installing emby theatre on your laptop. You could use that until you get the Andriod box figured out.
You can still plug it into your tv for now.
When you say that MCE was removed from your computer, did you know that you can turn MCE on and off? Was it actually removed or was it disabled in windows?
Well I finally figured everything out after hours of rtying diffrent suggestions. If I were new and had no idea about what I was doing I woud have been a very frustrated prospect and would have walked away from all of this with nothing positive to say about emby/media server but that is not the case and I love a good challange and never give up.
Chef, You are right, installing emby theater like you and so many others told me to do was what I needed to do, the problem was I did download emby theater with my windows download server a few days ago when I downloaded the software but the emby theater download and media player server are both named "setup.exe" so when I went to my downloads folder (a few days ago) I had "setup.exe(1)", "setup.exe(2)", "setup.exe(3)". So I assumed I accidently downloaded the program too many times and cleaned out my file folders even though I was downloading different software.
There definitely needs to be a thread posted that says "NEW-Start Here" with just the basics as far as downloading whatever needs to be added to your laptop at least with a list or something. Maybe I will try and help with just a basic tutorial when I have enough time. I built a whole forum with all my questions and tutorials that helped many people in a very successful WordPress design forum (not naming) and I tested all WordPress software, plugins, templates, code, PSDS, and more. OK, well enough bragging, I want to get on with my new emby theater interface download, ohhhhhh, I'm so excited!
I just want to say THANK YOU to all who have helped me
Angelblue05, Thanks you for this suggestion,
"However, you can add your local Emby server web client to your Emby connect, by going in your local server dashboard > Users > Select the user and add in settings your Emby forums username. You will then receive an email to confirm you want to link the two."
A Big Thank You to
And if I left anyone out a Big thank you to you also!
