Best way to start Emby Theater on boot on Raspberry Pi

Hi,

 

I looked all the way through the big Emby Theater thread and there's a couple of posts mentioning how to autostart Emby Theater on boot up of a Raspberry Pi.

 

I've tried a couple of these methods and also some other methods found searching the internet but I'm not having any joy at the moment - does anyone have a preferably fool proof or best way to get this setup?

 

I'm running the latest version (3.0.3).

 

Close to trying the full Emby Pi image but I have a few other things already on the Pi that i'd have to re-add and configure again which I'd prefer not to.

 

Thanks!

The file: /home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart

Is executed when the rpi starts up.

 

 

At the bottom of this file add these lines to start emby with raspbian. You may have to edit your the file paths to match where electron and theater are actually installed.

 

@xset s off

@xset -dpms

@xset s noblank

@/usr/local/bin/electron /home/pi/emby-theater-pi

Thanks for that, works perfectly cheers.

 

I also add a boost to the volume that might be useful for others:

@amixer set PCM -- 90%

I've found putting it to 100% I'd get a few crashes, not sure if it's related but as soon as I nudge it down it doesn't seem to happen so that's good enough for me.

You need to remove the space between -- and 90% so the correct command is @amixer set PCM --90%
