Essentially what we do is take your title and plug it into the TVDB search engine, and the highest match is what we end up using, more or less.
IS there an Emby PS4 app??

It's developer terminology vs end user terminology, so yes it can be misleading and maybe the Emby website should describe the PS4 facilities as a "web application" instead to avoid the "app" keyword.
That would probably be the easiest way to reduce any confusion

Yep, Yet another Customer That fell into the trap. Heard some talk of Emby supporting IPTV downloaded the server on my laptop just to give it a shot and see before moving it over to my server. Install the server, setup the IPTV, Realize that i have to pay for a premier sub, Fine, i get it give my 5 bucks for a month (There really should be at least a 7 day trial to make sure your setup can work with everything) , Add the IPTV m3u again, doesn't work.... Go into the file and cut down a bunch of the streams so there is an easier chance of figuring out this mess. reupload the file, good channels work, epg isn't whatever deal with that later, ok go to test it on the PS4 find out that even though it says Emby TV APPS that is essentially a clunky webpage, It's bad enough using it with a keyboard and mouse, but trying to do anything with the PS4 controller is like getting a root canal. You can use any of the normal "ps4" functions like O for back.
The lack of a real PS4 App needs to be highlighted much better than it currently is. At least i'm only out the 5 bucks.

This too bad, for me the Emby website suggested that there is a Emby TV App for ps4 available, but I have to use the internal browser using http://tv.emby.media. But for me this has terrible performace and quality issues because my Emby server has to re-encode the movie on the fly to lower quality usable for the PS4 web browser. My Emby server doesn't have the power to do this, and even then I don't want to re-encode because I want to see and hear the movie in original high quality. And navigating a web app isn't quite the same feeling as a native app like the Plex app has.
