Hi all

I'm in the process of coming back to emby from Plex and had a question about live TV and recording TV.

I'm doing a clean install and need to install the driver package for the 2250 - yes I know it's older.

There are 2 versions, the standard windows drivers and the media center drivers. Any idea which needs to be installed to mesh with emby correctly, so I can use it as a pvr? I've also seen mixed reports of being able to use emby for livetv, but not with the 2250. Any workarounds?

Thanks for the help.

Title should be "emby server" but didn't catch the autocorrect on my tablet. Whoops.

Hi, welcome. Are you on windows? If so you can use your tuner with Emby by installing next pvr. Let us know if this helps. Thanks.

Yeah... if you read the whole post I was asking about which drivers to use...plain old windows or do I use the media center drivers?

Not sure if emby runs anything thru WMC on the record button or not. Don't want to get stuck installing/removing/reinstalling drivers if someone has some experience with this specific card.

Thanks for the tip about nextpvr.
