Thanks for the feedback! We'll have to look and see what we might be able to do there.

Tried this again with the latest mod ( 3.5.2.0 ) on my Thecus N5550.

 

Just out of curiosity your N5550 is it running firmware V2.06.02.10 like my N7770-10G is?

 

I did have the same sort of experience as you describe, where I had to manually start the server as it would not properly auto launch.  The problem I was experiencing was that on a reboot of the NAS it would actually stall during the bootup, to the point where I had to hookup a monitor to the NAS to see what was going on.  As mentioned above the last time I tried was using version 3.4.1.19 so maybe there has been some improvement in 3.5.2 so it doesn't hang on the reboot of the NAS.  Also is there was any additional apps you installed which I may have missed that are required.

Unfortunately, the latest emby program in emroid can't be used with version 3.2.70.0. I can't install newer ones. When will it be resolved to install the latest server file on the x86 platform?

Tried this again with the latest mod ( 3.5.2.0 ) on my Thecus N5550.

So current status, the server software WORKS! Great news and is a lot faster than the older pre .Net Core versions.

 

But, the Thecus OS still does not like the current mod version very much... after installation of the mod, you need to 'start' the module in the thecus manual application installation area.

This gives no feedback after trying for a while... a good working mod will tell you that it has been started. Trying to start it again results in nothing.

But this does actually trigger the software to run! So even though you get no feedback in the thecus admin area, the mod is actually running and working.

 

Secondly if you reboot the NAS, you need to trigger the start manually again, because after reboot thecus OS will tell you the emby server mod restarting is not working.

 

So overall, it works, but it needs to be trigger manually to start ( even after NAS reboot ) and you won't see visual confirmation in the thecus admin panel.

 

So @Luke thought I would try again and give some feedback and I'm having a very similar experience as @Glenn:

 

Thecus N7770-10G w/ firmware version: V2.06.03.1 (2018-11-16)

Emby Server Package: emby-server-thecus_4.1.0.1_x86_64.mod

 

Basically as Glenn states the software installs properly and once you click to start the module it seems to respond correctly with the caveat that it never gets a response that the module has started (in the admin panel).

 

The one difference between Glenn's version is that if I reboot the machine it seems to stall the machine during bootup.  What I assume is happening is that it tries to start the Emby module but never receives a response back that it started and so just hangs there.  A successive reboot seems to boot the machine normally, but I would need to restart the Emby Server module manually as Glenn stated.

 

I think its very close to functional, there is just something missing telling the Thecus unit that the module successfully started.

for guys running on OS5 and having the module installed, just edit the file /raid/data/module/cfg/module.rc/EmbyServer.rc

Find this line

$APP_DIR/bin/emby-server &

and change it to

$APP_DIR/bin/emby-server > /dev/null 2>&1 &

For Emby developers, add this change in the module.rc script, to fix the hanging issue on OS5

I'm not sure what the solution of @outkastm means. Does it solve the hanging problem of @throgmorton but not the 'not installing problem' I (and @meszimark) have ?

I see you have a NAS using x86 architecture. Official Emby package is not available for this platform.This fix is for 64bit OS5 platform

Just a heads up, I've removed the link from the first post and going forward you can find this package from the download page of our website:

 

https://emby.media/download

 

It's under the NAS section, then select Thecus.

 

Thanks guys.

 

The links for the 64bit software are valid, but the Emby app does not appear in the integrated appstore under Thecus OS7 nor does it appear in the Thecus online webstore. Additionally the instructions mention that manual download by PC is required for OS5 & 6, but no download links are supplied - I am searching for the most recent ARM version of Emby for my N2350 - any chance the new release will support me? many thanks!!
