just checking logs now.

 

Yeah Model Year is identified as HU

 

Within Emby Settings Log on running files.

 

Deadpool reported as

Level Compatibility true: 41

Profile Compatability true: High

 

Independence Day reported as

Level Compatibility False: 51

Profile Compatability true: Constrained Baseline

 

The Lego Movie reported as

Level Compatibility  false: 51

Profile Compatability true: High

 

Looks like it may just be the files with their various encoding methods.

 

Is there a way to access a text version of the log?

Well, it looks like it's identifying your TV as a HU correctly and plays some of your UHD without transcoding.  So that's good.  However, the settings in the app are set to transcode H264 with level > 41 which explains why it's transcoding those 2 movies.  

 

There may be a problem in the code though that may help if changed.  It looks like H-series TVs only support H264 up to level 4.1, but if you look at the user's manual I posted above the UHD TVs support H264 up to 5.1.  @fluffykiwi can you verify your user's manual says the same thing as in my post #243 for the HU8550?  Basically, does it support level 5.1 for H264?

 

@cmcg  I hate to do this to you again, but there may be another tweak we can do to the transcoding parameters which would help.  It appears the UHD TVs (models with "HU") support H264 up to 51.  The HD H-series tvs only do H264 up to 41 though.  Maybe we can change the following for case "HU" only to say 51

			case "h264":

				this.codec = true;

				this.container = ["asf","avi","mkv","mp4","3gpp","mpg","mpeg","ts","m4v","m2ts","mov","vro","tp","trp","flv","vob","svi","mts","divx"];

				this.resolution = [3840,2160];

				this.bitrate = 50720000;

				this.framerate = 30;

				this.level = 41;

				this.profile = ["Base","Constrained Baseline","Baseline","Main","High"];

				break;

In the manual it states FHD up to 4.1, but UHD up to 5.1.

 

Video Decoders
●● Supports up to FHD.264, Level 4.1 (does not support FMO/ASO/RS)
●● Supports up to UHD.264, Level 5.1
●● Supports up to HEVC UHD, Level 5.1, supports up to HEVC FHD, Level 4.1

 

I think the manual is shared between several models.

 

*this is not a priority for me as everything plays fine directly via TV and network.

Well, that would really complicate the code tremendously to make that change.  He would have to also check the rest of the characters in the model because the HU8550 supports 51 for both plus he would have to check the actual file for your TV to see if it was FHD or UHD.  

 

It's possible a firmware update for yours would bring it up to the HU8550.  I guess the only way to verify if firmware changes is if you had  a H264 which was both 1080p and level 51 and see if it played from usb

 

I did find your manual.  It's definitely different than the HU8550.  If cmcg can't change the code and your TV firmware didn't change what is supported it may be best to just leave it transcode files even though they don't require it rather than you getting a render error for FHD files.

Quick query.

Within Music what does the ? entry do now in the A-Z section.

 

I used it previously to bypass the A-Z selection where I could select a letter, to view all the As etc, or select ? and just scroll through everything. It now never seems to list any content.

 

I also slightly miss having A-Z as an option in the headings, so that if I have skip A-Z enabled in the settings I could still use it if I thought it might be useful for finding a particular album or artist.

 

My collection is just over 900 albums so navigating them is not an issue, especially with the Index Jump, but just noticing slight changes.

 

I would like to see a Latest entry within Music and possibly have all Music items list the Artist along with the album title and genre.

The only common thing between the "HU" models seems to be that they all support 2160p video at level 5.1.  Maybe cmcg could at least change 2160p/level 51 for all HU models.  I'm not a coder though, so not sure how exactly to code that paragraph.  Everything FHD and below could then be transcoded if > level 41 for all HU models even if they support level 51.

For me the "?" displays things like albums that don't start with a number or letter.  For instance the album Ænima by the group Tool

Firmware updates have improved the compatibility of the model. It is basically the curved screen version of HU8550, i.e. their top of the UK 2014 range if you wanted a 55" bent screen :P

 

It supports pretty much everything, with only HDR support being impossible for obvious reasons. I've yet to find a file it doesn't play directly, thankfully. Nothing else transcodes.

 

As I do not expect to collect a lot of 4K files any time soon, due to storage issues, I am not bothered about using the TV network to direct play three files instead of using Emby.  I do not intend to allow any files to transcode, as my PC is simply too noisy when doing this, and in my main living room. I also do not think the quality seems as good.

 

It would be interesting to test a version with the support level changed to 5.1 for both FHD and UHD so I might give that a go myself just to see whether it works. I think it will but maybe I just trust Samsung too much to keep my TV updated.

Excellent, that would be easy for cmcg to just change that one line for the HU models then.  He could always change it back if you got render errors :)

Edit: Ah, wow. Literally the posts above mine. Sorry...

 

 

 

Apologies if this has been posted before (I did look but couldn't find any resolution).

Have the transcoding params been updated to allow HU 4k TVs to stream 4k video instead of asking for it to be transcoded to 1080p?

 

I have a 50HU7000 and see the following in the logs when trying to play a 4k video:

Have I missed something?

Heh, ya.  Your app log should show as Model Year is HU now instead of just H

Yeah, it would help if I loaded the latest version before making bug reports.  :blink:

Hold on, I'll report back...

 

 

And in news that will shock nobody, upgrading to latest version solved everything. 

As always, you guys rock, keep it up!

Hi guys,

 

Long time. Totally missed this new push into live tv and channels. I dropped back to version 1.06 after some sluggish performance on my H series and has been very reliable but keen to get back to the HD version.

 

Before I install this version and give it a run, is there a way to have the two versions installed at the same time?

Not sure, you might be able to have one installed and the other side loaded?  I believe my TV would let you create shortcuts to both

If you've got a webserver you can use, you should be able to load both apps.  Just create the Widget folder as usual, but edit the widgetlist.xml file to point to both zips of old and new.  For example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<rsp stat="ok">
<list>
<widget id="EmbyOld">
<title>EmbyOld</title>
<compression size="2089113" type="zip"/>
<description/>
<download>http://192.168.1.111/Widget/EmbyOld.zip</download>
</widget>
<widget id="EmbyNew">
<title>EmbyNew</title>
<compression size="2089113" type="zip"/>
<description/>
<download>http://192.168.1.111/Widget/EmbyNew.zip</download>
</widget>
</list>
</rsp>

I did do something like this a while back when I was trying out different versions so it should work.  However I think they all went on as "Emby" so you'll have to guess which one is which.   :)

Nice find, thanks Frosty. It won't help @@LLDaLastDon though. To force transcoding set the bitrate to it's lowest value.

I figured out how to get it to play. It wasnt the video. It was the audio. Its aac but I had to go to the settings and switch "Enable AAC transcoding to Dolby" and "Enable Dolby Digital Playback" to true. What is weird is it appears that my tv (un75hu8550) states that it supports AAC.

I think all you did was force it to transcode another way vs using the bitrate setting.  AAC should be fine with your TV, there are a lot of others who have the same TV

Hi 

I want to come over from Plex to emby  but there is one problem that is holding me Back at this Moment.

I Use Emby on Synology DS713+  so not much CPU and RAM Power 

And my TV is a UE55F6510

 

So my Problem is every File with DTS Sound Plays only with Transcoding Audio  the Same File with Plex Direct Play

 

how do i get it to direct play with emby ?

 

I Use the Beta 2.2.0h

You will have to go into the settings and turn on DTS because it's off by default (you may want to change some of the other settings also while you're in there)

 

1.  Settings

2. TV Settings

3. change DTS playback  to True

Sorry forgot to say

I did that already :-D

can you post a pic of the log file from the app?  There should be a section where it checks the audio, video, subtitles, etc for compatibility

Interesting... it seems that the issue may be the audio because the video seems to play OK. I'm wondering if it's something to do with the AAC in combination with the hevc format. it starts working when I change that setting to transcode to Dolby. It also works when I'm using any other format in combination with AAC
