Nevermind it started working...now to figure out how to keep other users from messing up my recorings by using one of the channels while the recording is going on.  Any suggestions?

@@Luke has stated he is gonna add ability to "Merge" sub accounts (iptv-1, iptv-2 ect) into Emby in a future update! Sounds fantastic but we all are waiting on this feature.....

 

Right now....Your only solution is to run 2-3 separate Emby Servers. One for recording that no one has access to but you and others for viewing....or you can have all the channels duplicated and let everyone know the second listing is yours only :). Some IPTV Services allow multiple Streams...Mine doesn't.

 

I have tried multiple stream services and they are not very reliable sources. (Vaders & Beast)

Curious how you got it working? I’m contemplating an IPTV service and was wondering how we get guide data? @@Luke, the built in guide data for premium subscribers won’t work with IPTv as the tuner?

If you can find a lineup that closely matches your iptv channels then it could work. But finding that out on your own is not something that would be easy to do.

I haven't found a IPTV Service yet that didn't furnish Guide Data for their Service...Interesting....(Only drawback is this Data is only 24 - 48 Hours. If you want longer Guide Data Map the channel to Emby Guide).

Thanks guys. I am getting up and running on how this all works. Probably wont go this route due to the hoops you need to jump through and also the gray area on the legality of it all.

WebGrab is by far the best solution that I have found to download EPG data.  It takes some work to get it working right, but once it does, it is excellent.
