Emby Server 126.96.36.199
Emby Theater 2.8.3
I have researched and found articles about emby theater blacking out on NVIDIA cards. I have attempted to try some solutions none work, that I have found.
Now let me tell you about the setup I am running, the symptoms, and my thoughts about possible issues.
I have multiple machines (windows 10 64bit running emby. The server is obviously running on one. That is not the issue.
Machine 1 (with server, Nvidia dual, (SLI) GTX 1080 hybrid (liquid cooled)vid cards, Also gaming machine) not issue
Machine 2. windows 10 64bit NVIDIA Titan hybrid (liquid cooled). THIS IS THE PROBLEM MACHINE. Running Emby theater, 3 video outputs, dual DVI, and HDMI to LCD 70" screen. I have also connected via HDMI.
Emby Server Dashboard on this machine also, to access the server on the other machine.
I am running auto updates and the latest software for theater, and server.
PROBLEM. Theater runs fine for about an hour or two on the problem machine, then it blacks out. The blue power button on the display turns yellow, that is telling me there is no display signal on the monitor, then it also states no dsplay signal, also the LCD tv states signal loss.
The Hard Drive on the machine continues to get lit, I end up hard restarting the machine, Then it works fine then goes through the same issue again.
One thing i did notice I also have emby dashboard installed on the second computer, If i play the movie through that it works fine, It only does it in Emby Theater. They must use different players, because my wireless headphones have player controls on them, The controls work with Emby theater, but do not in the Emby Server mode. In Emby server, only the volume controls work. So obviously, the controls\program is different between theater and server players. That is why I like the Theater option better, my controls work for remote playing.
I have restarted, updated, checked for screen saver timeouts (which there maybe some that I did not find, between monitor, windows, NVIDIA etc)
I have used Emby for years, love it, but this one has me pulling what little hair i have left out on it.
Still, thanks for the great program.
