Live TV Switching Channels up/down and direct

Recommended Posts

StefanWithEmby

Hello,

 

I am new to emby theater and I have two questions related to live tv:

 

1. I want to switch between tv channels via up/down (next / prev) during live tv

    Is there a keyboard shortcut available?
    I am using a windows-remote-control via Harmony one. Is it possible to use the remote control for it?
    (with mediaportal it was possible without problems)

 

2. I want to switch directly to a desired channel (e.g. channel 8 or 10) during live tv

    Is this possible?

 

 

With best regards,

Stefan

 

PS: I am using the dvb-viewer recording service as tv backend.

Thanks for the fast reply. 

 

I was using Media-Portal and I am currently evaluating to replace it with emby.

 

Do you have schedule for this features?

I suppose that these features are very important for us.

 

With  best regards,

Stefan

Ok,

 

I bought dvb-viewer so that I can use it as backend for emby (recording service).

 

I installed and tried the "normal" version (not the service) - and observed following aspects:

1. Channel switching seems for me very fast.

    Do you have any idea how much extra time will emby to this fast-switching time?

    ( I assume that the dvb-viewer service switches as fast as the normal version)

 

2. If I switch from one channel to another dvb-viewer shows for some time the epg info.

    Is this also planned for emby?

 

3. Is it possible to disable the extra screen with the play-button after I selected a channel (e.g. Das-Erste)?

    If a select a channel I want directly play it - without extra screen...
