Emby Plugin/feature - TV guide layout for media playback

Hello,

 

I'm not sure if this exists but I have merely overlooked it. If I have please point me in the right direction.

My memory is shot but I am pretty sure I used a plugin for Emby that did this waaay back in the day.

 

Firstly, I use Emby for WMC.

 

I am wondering if a feature could be added / plugin created that would display your media in a style like the TV Guide, having multiple channels, and displaying media randomly for each channel.

 

You could configure all of the channels by naming them what you want, and showing what media folders you wanted on each channel.

 

The plugin would then create a random playlist for each channel.

Ideally, it would only play items from the unplayed content, possibly make this an option.

 

It would be great to sit down on a weekend and have Emby play random TV shows and movies for me, much like watching real TV (minus the garbage).

 

My apologies if this has been requested before, and I simply didn't look hard enough.

Cheers.

I believe there is a plugin for Kodi called "Psuedo TV" which does this exact thing. You may want to review these other thread/feature requests on the same topic:

Cheers for the links Tremas. Much appreciated. I have added my like to both threads.

 

MBPlus, that's the plugin I used to use waaay back in the day. I thought it was great, for the short time that it existed. Would be great if it was revived.

I don't use Kodi so Pseudo TV wouldn't be any good for me, unfortunately.
