This actually already exists in our Android TV/Fire TV app.

Yes, but the web app and Theater should as well. In fact, this is where PiP should come in...

+1 for this to be in Theater.

The fact that if you try and use Theater for what it was intended for, ie on a big TV with a remote you cant even change the channel with the channel up and down buttons, you have to back out and go back to the guide which stops the stream.

At least being able to bring the guide overlay ontop so you can browse the guide would be a massive move in the right direction.

 

Like you say, you have the code working in the android tv app already, whats holding you back?

Is this feature any closer to release? . .. Emby theatre really needs it

Forget it. This has been "in development" for 2 years. Not going to happen.

Viewing the channel guide while playing will be in Emby Server 4.7. Thanks.

Will that mean it will also appear in the big screen apps such as Theatre?

Great! It’s a pain in the butt to click back to see what’s currently on. Sometimes you want to just check what’s about to come on without having to stop what you are currently watching.

HI, most of our apps have the guide built into the video player now.

Yes I tested it on my Google TV but I really like my Apple TV and really don’t want to change devices.
