i do the same with a different
back end, mediaportal now dvbviewer. I acknowledge subs concerns but in my view the vast improvement of having emby do the scheduling and the much better overall experience of having one piece of software doing everything far outweighs the one concern he expresses, in that you lose multi rec. personally I just make sure that emby has enough tuners (8 currently) that this isn’t an issue.
I currently only have 2 tuners, which could be an issue, however, I only allow access to LiveTV for my account so I just have to be cognizant of the fact. I agree with both points of view. No happy medium? I am not sure how the m3u streams work and how you can tell if there are no more available tuners in a general sense. Do you make a request for the stream and wait for a response, or do you just grab the stream and if it works it works? You probably could figure it out in Emby if only one client is used, but I can see how it would be next to impossible if you had multiple clients. Or am I wrong?
