Hm, that sounds more like a static user preference than an ad-hoc filtering while browsing the guide.

 

Could that be a solution perhaps?

  • User can define a basic channel selection via options
    (those TAGs would be ORed)
    .
  • When using TAGs while viewing the guide, these conditions will be combined with AND logic

 

 

 

As im sure you are well aware, you wont make everyone happy....     Your goal is to make as many happy leaving the sad minority voters behind...   :(      BUT   I would try to make it as similar to a commercial CATV or DIRECTV, TVio box as you can...    everyone is used to that today... if they need more then they can do some side third party thing like we have to do today..

This [...] of what has already been done to the best design I have seen. WMC.


You might be glad to hear that I share that opinion in general.

 

It sounds like you want to reinvent the wheel for the sake of it. Pushing out delivery dates at the same time

 

I'm afraid, but this is something that we will not discuss with users, other than saying that your assumption is incorrect.

I don't know many people that would need to group 60 catv channels or 5-20 Antenna channels  (lol ok maybe 200 catv ch but still)...   ;)     BUT i do get your guys point..  Some kind of tagging for those guys, and abide by the group tags for m3u's,  SOLD!  I'm IN!   :)

 

With a satellite receiver, you can easily get to have 1000 channels...

so what satellite receiver ties directly to emby without using third party software (where you could edit groups).  :)   A little curious, I was looking for this early on.

What is that sad minority that you think we would leave behind??

 

 I would try to make it as similar to a commercial CATV or DIRECTV, TVio box as you can...    everyone is used to that today...

 
That would be one of the bullets points I had posted above:
 

  • Automatic generation of TAGs from channel genres (ATSC/DVB)

I would really love to see this feature being implemented as my IPTV provider provides M3U files with group titles. First, like many of you I was thinking that an option to select a group and then list the channels would be amazing and would make my Emby experience complete.

 

I must admit that I even like @softworkz suggestion to use tags even more:

 

 


 

The whole point of having TAGs instead of a fixed grouping, is that this allows multiple parallel ways to categorize (what most of you mean by "group") channels.

This includes:

  • Automatic generation of TAGs from M3U groups (IPTV)
  • Automatic generation of TAGs from channel genres (ATSC/DVB)
  • Automatic generation of TAGs from EPG item genres 
  • Automatic generation of TAGs depending on channel source type (IPTV, SAT, Cable, Terrestrial)
  • Automatic generation of other TAGs like 'Most Viewed', 'Having EPG', etc.
  • Manual creation and assignment of custom tags

The whole point of this is to have a single system that can serve multiple purposes.

 

 

 

 

First of all because it can be used for different sources, like iptv and/or satelite.

Second it will make it even easier to find just the content that you like, e.g.: filter on a country first and then filter on a tag like news, weather, football or whatever is being extracted from the epg source.

 

Then you won't have to think about what tags to give to your channels up front, as the channel can have a tag "sports" or "news" based on what is planned within the timeslot the EPG guide is showing :-)

 

Really hope to see this functionality implemented soon. If you need any help testing I'd love to help out :)

Keep up the good work!
