TLDR: I figured out how to trick Emby in to doing this without the need for any photo editing:
 

Okay...

So I figured out how to trick Emby Server into creating the library poster you want. I'll do a more detailed explanation later, but here is the short version.

1. Create a Folder accessible to Emby and put the 4 images you want to use in it. I called my folder customposter.
2. Manage server and "Add Media Library".
3. Choose Content Type "Photos"
4. Pick a display name. I called mine customposter again
5. Add a folder to the library and point it at the folder from step one.
6. Click Ok
7. Wait Patiently.... I Rescanned my library, but I don't know if that is needed.
8. Go and grab the poster.png file in the directory for that library. I used directions in this post to figure that out.
9. Once you are done, you can get rid of that library. Or, you can keep it (I made mine so only I see it) to create more custom posters.
10. Because I just feel better about having 10 steps.



Hey all...
 
I'm still setting up Emby... I really like the way that the server creates the "My Media" icons from movies, music, etc.
 
Is there a way to manually recreate that to make icons for other items under My Media?
 
I downloaded a basic image with some network logos for Live TV... and honestly... it just looks ugly next to the ones Emby makes.
 
Is there a way to manually do this on the server (linux) from select files?  I have to imagine it's buried in there somewhere.  
 
Thanks

Well... I see it now...

 

This question will certainly fit there.

I finally sucked it up and just manually created my own.  It isn't perfect, but it turned out okay.

Could you upload that image as others may want to use it?

That's a good idea.   :)

 

I'll probably work up a newer version later... that was just a quick stab at it in Gimp.  I could probably do a better job given some more time.

I pulled an actual poster.png from my server... I'll use that as a template now so that the sizes will match up better.

Here's trial #2 which matches a little better with the normal posters of Emby.

 

Enjoy.

Here's a third one...

 

I realized there was something "off" about the FOX logo... namely "Brodcasting" was spelled wrong...

 

LOL

Vote this to be default image for live TV if tile has no graphic ( instead of the pascal flat colour tiles in live tv)

Not sure if it could/should be distributed with the builds because of the images used.

 

But they have made it easy enough to quickly update it.

Give some examples of networks we can google or provide images and maybe someone can photoshop something. I could do it tomorrow morning if no one else beats me to it.

It's not that hard to do more...

 

Point me to 4 images that can be cropped to a tall aspect ratio like that, and I can knock them out pretty quickly.

 

If you can crop them to 210x350 or 230x390 I can knock them out in a few minutes.

 

I built a couple of templates that will take images about that size.

I have a couple templates built in Gimp... 

 

You have to have a few skills to finish them off, but it's doable.

I was not clear and actually mean for live TV tiles in ET e.g under "now playing" and "upcoming programmes" all listings are currently pascal colours (in my setup).
