Has anyone with a J Series TV tried Emby Theatre on it via the web browser?

Just wondered, as looking at getting a J Series TV for a bedroom, but would like you use Emby without having to plug any devices into it.

Thanks in advance.

I don't know what letter series I have but u have a 2015 model for testing and the web app works well on it so it just needs to be packaged into an app.

OK, thanks Luke.

I might go out and buy the TV tomorrow then.

I believe the 2015 model is J with 2016 a K.

I pick up the J series TV on Friday (out of stock until then !!), so will have a play with ET via the browser.

 

Any timescales as to when a packaged app will be available please ??

 

Thanks.

I was able to pick up the TV today, so I have had a play with ET via the browser.

Needs a bit more work to make it more intuitive, but it plays stuff OK.

The browser option barely works..and the browser option is not really any good for a TV front end.  I think we need to be patient until a developer creates an Tizen APP. In the mean time, you could co-install PLEX on the same server as EMBY, set it to use local fanart. It has a really good Tizen App.

I have a J series (UE48J5500) and the web browser route was too clunky for me as well.

 

The TV does have DNLA and picks up Emby as a source. Browsing is fairly easy and it plays, it's just not super pretty like MCE, etc.

I use plex for my Samsung bedroom tv. their Tizen app is really good... Running plex and Emby on the same server is really no problem at all.

Hi

 

I've just discovered Emby and like it so far. Got the app on my F series TV but I also have a J series. Is there any update on an app for this one? I can't find any info on this.
