Hi, 

 

I have some problems with LIVE TV.

 

1º - If i add a channel to a local iptv list (m3u) i cant get channel in my server until i remove and add again. Is that correct? Is that the only way yo refresh a m3u list?

 

2º - I have a list like this:

 

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:-1 channel-id="100" channel-name="channel ABC" tvg-logo="http://some.logo.lin...up-title="groupA",channel name
http;//some.stream.link.100.m3u8
#EXTINF:-1 channel-id="101" channel-name="channel DEF" tvg-logo="http://some.logo.lin...up-title="groupA",channel name
http;//some.stream.link.102.m3u8
#EXTINF:-1 channel-id="102" channel-name="channel GHI" tvg-logo="http://some.logo.lin...up-title="groupA",channel name
http;//some.stream.link.103.m3u8
and so on.....
 
In live-tv section on web-browser, in channels tab, the channel 101 and 707 are displayed before everything else (see image). Is any reason that happen?
 
I did a new installation of emby-server on my local machine and the list is displayed correctly.
I did a clean cache in the server, remove and re-add, refresh channels, change name of the list from aaa.m3u to bbb.m3u, change the link of the channel, remove the lines of that 2 channels e re-add. The result is all the same, if the channels are in the list the order in web-browser is that one.
 
In the emby add-on for kodi its even worst, because the order is by name and not by the number.
 
I have a lots of channels, they all organized in the .m3u file, they are ordered properly. I think if the order in the web-browser, and in the order apps by the way, should be the order of the .m3u file. Or in alternative, it should be possible to order manually or by other criteria. 
If i add a xmtv file the order in the mapping list is the order in the files, so i cant understand way the view of the daily basis its not the same thing.
 
I think this problem should be resolved if i do a clean install, but since i have the server running on a slow machine and i have a lots of media added to him, the reconfiguration will be a nightmare.
I moved the data folder to a backup (to do a test) and start emby-server, its basically a new installation because all the settings are gone, i added the list and everything is fine, so i assume that its somting wrong with my db.
 
3º - In other scenario if i add the list with tvg-id tag, the names of every channel appear 2 times like 101 101, i don't understand why too. Maybe because the tvg-id is used to get the number and the name, but if that's the case the interface should display only one of them, even if i use the tvg-id and the tvg-name, the interface shows the same and complitly ignore tvg-name.
 
4º - Last but not least Its a suggestion. Would be awesome if the emby deal with the time-in xmltv, like, my xmltv have channels from different countries, and the hours are displayed like 201609011200 -0200, in this case the program is start 10:00 UTC, so if i am in UTC +1 in my time should be 11:00.
_______
 
To all developers a huge thank you for this awesome media server.Keep up the good work!!
