I found an old post regarding this: https://emby.media/c...t-connectivity/ ..... does this limitation still exist with the Apple TV?


My internet went out for a few hours tonight so I decided to fire up the Emby app on my Apple TV and catch up on some shows but all I got though was a gray screen. I switched over to the -Plex- client on my Apple TV and had no problems watching via Plex. (I run Emby and Plex on the same server.)


Log file attached (but if this is known issue with Emby on the Apple TV, I guess the log file doesn't matter? :)


If this -IS- a limitation, what magic is Plex doing that allows it to work?


Happened around 7:55pm eastern.

We went the TVML route with app that uses a combination of the installed app along with hosted assets. So yes that currently means it requires an internet connection. It's something we can look to improve in a future update to the app. Thanks !
