Thanks, Luke.

 

Can I give you access to test on my network (see the actual failing devices)?

Hi Luke.

 

4.1.0.1 did not stream to Oppo BDP-93, but 4.1.0.2 does.  And, all my other devices seem to be working (WD TV Live, various Roku, Chrome browser).  First time in a while that It is all working again.  Thank you!

 

I'm running Emby in iocage plugin jail on FreeNAS 11.2-U1.  Used the setup for beta provided here: https://github.com/b...age-plugin-emby (reads 4.1.0.1, but installs latest = 0.2).

 

But, I'll watch this for a bit before I delete 3.3 in the warden jail.

 

Roku causes transcoding due to unsupported subtitle streams.  Any easy way to stop that (short of removing the subtitles from the media)?

Sorry - Oppo plays first episode of TV season regardless of which is selected.

Well no changes were that would affect dlna but thanks for the info.

Please open a topic in the Roku section. Thanks.

Hi Luke.

 

Recapping my current situation:

3.3 works with my Oppo BDP-93, but not Roku (Emby app reports server version too old).

4.1.0.2 works with Roku but not Oppo (endlesly loops while connecting?).  Works with WD-TV Live, but disconnects about once an hour.

 

I presume you have not been able to test with an Oppo.  If you won't test on my network, can I send an Oppo to you?

 

Is it possible to install old versions of the Emby app on a Roku?

4.1.0.2? If you're running the beta server then i would make sure to stay on the latest. You're a little behind now. Thanks.

Thanks, Luke.

 

As before, 4.1.0.8 plays first episode of season on Oppo BDP-93 instead of requested episode (request s06e03, get s06e01).  This is consistent for all TV shows tested.

And 4.1.0.2 is really different? That's just bizarre because there aren't any dlna changes between those two versions.

Hi Luke.

 

Sorry for any confusion, but no.  4.1.0.2 is not different.  The problem reported for 0.8 had been previously reported for 0.2.  You pointed me toward a new release, and I tried to say I still had a problem ("As before").

 

I am reiterating in hopes of keeping my issues alive.  For me, Emby has been problematic for months (remote Roku stopped working because app reported server version too old, eventually upgraded server when FreeNAS iocage plugin became available, and BDP-93 has had various DLNA problems since.)  Running MiniDLNA is a letdown after years of Mediabrowser and Emby.

 

Two unanswered questions, please:

Can I somehow backlevel the Roku app to a version that will accept the 3.3 Emby server?

If you have no access to an Oppo BDP-93, and will not test via remote access to my network, do you want me to send you an Oppo or testing (I have no idea where you are located or what it would cost)?

 

Do you want logs again for the "plays first episode" issue?

 

Thank you for your help, and for Emby.

Sorry, not yet. this is an eight year old device and it will be a little more work to accommodate than newer devices. Thanks.

Thanks, Luke.

 

But, the eight year old device runs a standard, albeit old, version of DLNA, and was working perfectly in previous versions of Emby.

Hi Luke.

 

I gather this will not be fixed (because my device is deemed too old).  Please confirm.

 

If you are still pursuing this and need an Oppo BDP-93, I renew my offer to send one.

Tried 4.1.0.16.  Still the problem that requests from the BDP-93 for episodes other than the first of a TV season will play the first episode.  Interestingly, this is not true for season 1, which plays all episodes properly.  This phenomenon is consistent for all TV series that I tried.  I did a "replace metadata" scan, but the problem persists.  So, no joy here.

Hi Luke.

 

I created a test FreeNAS server at release 11.2-U1 and repeatedly installed versions of Emby-Server under iocage.  I have resolved that version 3.5.3.0 plays to my Oppo BDP-93 properly, but no version 4.x.x.x does so.  The earlier 4.0.x.x versions are not seen by the Oppo, and the more/most recent 4.1.0.16 version plays wrong episodes as I described on March 23.

 

I would test 3.6, but could not find a emby-server-freebsd_3.6.x.x_amd64.txz file to use.  Can you point to one or send me one?

Has the latest release made any difference?

Hi Luke.

 

When I browse to 4.1.0.26 the Oppo BDP-93 locks up.  It has to be turned off and on to get it working again.  I have not seen this before.  I'll get debugging logs tomorrow.

 

Thanks for your continued interest.

Hi Luke.

 

Here are logs of 4.1.0.26 when Oppo BDP-93 tries to find Emby Server and hangs.

 

Would you like logs from 3.5.3.0 at same moment?

I've pushed an update to the Dlna plugin. Please try that once you have it. Thanks.
