Integrating files into Emby - New User Questions

Recommended Posts

rhino_hookem

I have been a Windows Media Center user for years but want to change over to a better platform and was considering Emby. I wanted to know if it was capable of doing what I want prior to joining. I currently run Windows 8 and have a Ceton InfiniTV 4-tuner card and record Spectrum cable using my PC as my DVR. My questions are:
---Can the recordings that I currently have from my DVR be integrated to view from Emby? To follow up, can I still record TV in the same manner and watch the recordings from Emby?
---Also, I have three hard drives of my movie collection and wanted to be able to play that back from Emby. Most recordings are .mkv files.
Thanks for any advice.

@@rhino_hookem Ever get your WMC recordings to parse properly and display in Emby under TV? I'd like to do the same.

@@Luke I wanted to see if Emby could properly parse WMC recordings in to the TV Library.  I posted a new topic here to avoid reviving this old post: https://emby.media/c...mc-recordings/

If you can provide a sample file for testing I can see what data ffprobe is able to extract. Thanks.
