Good Evening.

Some more tests today.

Its seems that subtitles which are correctly sync on webapp are late on emby-theater (1 second)

Already experience that?

For sure.

I was watching a movie last time. I notice that my subtitle (external srt file) are well synchronized with the web application but a little 'late' on emby theater.

Another issue, the movie begin to slow down after 45min. I check on the Pi and emby-theater was using lot of RAM/CPU. I kill the process (-9) and the movie get ok again with npm running 'solo'.

 

(tell me if you need a log).

This is superb!! Thanks very much for the hard work. However...

 

When I pause a movie/show with my TV remote, via CEC Adapter, the screen goes black and none of the remote controls work e.g. I can't resume playback with the 'play' button and 'return' doesn't get me back to the home screen. I have a bluetooth keyboard attached to the Raspberry Pi and I can use this to move the cursor around the screen, find the play icon and get everything playing again. Obviously, I could just use the bluetooth keyboard but I wondered if anyone else has experienced this and managed to overcome it, as it's more convenient to use the TV remote.

 

As said, thanks so much for this though, it's such a pretty UI!

Thanks for the feedback. Currently due to hardware transparency limitations, anytime the OSD has to show the screen will go black, so that's why that happens. We're not currently able to overlay content on top of the video.

Hi Luke,

I do remember reading that in the forum.

 

My problem is that, if I pause with my TV remote, the screen goes black and i cannot resume playback. I have to use a bluetooth keyboard to make the cursor visible, at which point I can see the OSD and I can select play.

 

I just wondered if that's something others have experienced and if there's something I can adjust in the settings to make the OSD pop up when I use the TV remote to pause?

What if you press the play button on the TV remote?

The OSD pops up but the video doesn't play. I can navigate to the different buttons but if I press OK on my remote, to select Play, nothing happens and then the screen goes completely black. I can get back to the home screen using the cursor, via the touchpad of my bluetooth keyboard, but when I try to play and resume what I was watching, I either get a Blue Screen saying "Playback Error" or it just hangs of the fan art screen. After that I have to reboot.

What happens if you instead always pause and resume using the keyboard?

It works fine with the keyboard. As said, I can live with using the keyboard it's just nice to be able to use the TV remote and since I can navigate through the menu structure using the TV remote, I was hoping there might be something else I could try to solve the problem.

Seeing this in the current pi image. Any possible resolution for this issue? Pi has great potential but this really limits the user experience at the moment. Thanks for all the effort so far.

Yes at some point we'll have to do a new osd design just for pi. Thanks.

Hi all, fairly new to Linux Distro's and Raspberry Pie's but upon clearing out my cupboards the other day amongst the dozens of old hard drivers and plethora or other old computer stuff I found not one but 2 Raspberry Pie Model B's!

 

Now I've played around with a Pie before managed to load XBMC on one years ago for a mate and also install Raspbian before using N00bs, now I have downloaded the from the link in the first post in the "Emby Theatre Thread", used Rufus to write the img to the SD card, gone through the setup process, all connected the the network and password setup.

 

Whenever I try to run emby it doesn't load, I've tried running it via Run and nothing at all.  I will also add that I've told the setup to log me in automatically and it didn't nor does it try to launch emby automatically either (or that I can see).

 

I've loaded up Task Manager and can't even see the emby process.

 

Anyone offer any help?  Would like to put a couple of old Pi's to use :)  TIA.

Hi Luke, thanks for the reply, it was 3.0.6, I think, its the one linked too in the Linux thread linked too from the 1st post on this thread.

I downloaded https://github.com/M...r-rpi_3.0.6.zip

 

I have also tried 3.0.4 with no luck either, however I have now downloaded OSMC and installed the EmbyCon Addon for Kodi, works great for playback, sluggish for the menu's but it works!  I did try Emby for Kodi Sync Addon when using Rasbpian with Kodi installed but it crashed after a few mins.

 

I did read on another thread that Emby Theater doesn't work on a Pi Model B?
