I am new to using the remote control feature on Emby. I can send the movie that im playing to my Samsung tv (dont have tv emby app), i can then use the Samsung tv remote to control the movie im watching, i cant control the playback from my laptop browser or the smartphone app once i send it to the tv. The same happens when i send it to Theatre on my htpc, it plays on my htpc but i dont have any control over it from my browser or smartphone app.

 

Is this normal behavior or should i be able to control the playback from my laptop browser or my smartphone app?

 

Another issue is a program i was watching has embedded subtitles in the mkv file, it plays the subtitles  automatically when i send the video to the tv, subtitles are switched off on my tv settings.

I'll test out remote control but if the TV is direct playing the file then we can't control whether it decides to enable subtitles or not. You will need to use your TV remote to adjust once playback starts.

I just tested remote control with Theater and it worked fine. What exactly was your issue? Why do you think it wasn't working?

 

For remote control to your smart tv - question - is this one of your folder rips?

Thanks for testing that for me Luke. 

 

I tried again and got it to work fine. What i did this time was enable the remote control from the icon at the top of the screen first, then it allows me to control playback to Theatre or my Tv. Before i was enabling it from the playback screen, this only sends it to the device, it does not let you control it further.

 

I know the subtitles feature is down to the tv, not much i can do if subtitles are set to off. 

 

The remote control is a great feature and  im sure i will enjoy using it often. Thanks for your assistance.

Im finding the remote control feature a bit of a hit and a miss, for a while there seemed to be a long delay between pressing the pause button on my phone app and the actual movie pausing or playing again, now if i press pause of my phone app the pause button remains a pause button and im unable to continue remote controlling the movie. 

 

Any ideas?

Nice one thanks LUke, do you have a rough idea of the update release date?
