Remote network Live tv

is it possible to put in an address from another computer running serverwmc on another network through the internet and have it pull into emby.  I see under the settings tab for serverwmc it asks for the IP/Name of where serverwmc is located.

it seems to not work, just hangs on the loading page of the channel.  I switch to a local serverwmc and it works just fine.

 

Error message below sometimes shows up.

No compatible streams are currently available. Please try again later or contact your system administrator for details.

Its not necessary that the rec tv folder by accessible if you have url's enabled for live/recordings in the http service of serverwmc.  But then these urls have to be accessible over the internet, which I have never tried.  Possible maybe with port forwarding?

Well I took some time off and back at this again.  I found out one thing is that wmcserver plugin can't do DNS it needs to be IP address based for remote access to another network.  So I'm able to see the guide and channel info however when trying to play a channel it sits and spins then times out.

 

I'm guessing it is doing this because its basically tunneling it through the server.
