We have a couple of Samsung TVs in the house, which are not very "smart" out of the box. To solve that problem we have installed nVidia Shield devices for each of these TVs.
This solved the problems with the built in functionality. Streaming apps are working perfectly now ... with the exception of Emby.
The problem is that the Emby client for Android TV cannot manage a server that is in the Sleep State.
I'm respectfully requesting for a feature that can manage the sleep/wake state of the Emby Server (in my case the host is Windows 10). This can be done by:
- Sending a WOL magic packet to the server when a client requests a video to be streamed (and the server is in the sleep state).
- Keeping the server awake during streaming.
Really love the Emby server, as it provides many benefits over its competitors, like Plex, but the absence of this feature really limits its usability in the Android TV space.
