I believe Emby Server is not reading #EXTINF data correctly in m3u playlists.


I had to alter the following entries in my playlist

#EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="7",7 Digital Melbourne
#EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="71",7 Digital Melbourne
#EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="7",7Digital Melbourne
#EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="71",7Digital Melbourne
Emby was not parsing these correctly, and was not mapping them to the correct channel number. I am guessing that if the channel name begins with a digit, it is read as a channel number.

I can't make this change without breaking other use cases, so i think for now you will have to adjust the m3u. thanks.
