I am testing Emby recording Live TV now with the new version 4.x
I have been using NextPVR for all my recordings which has worked well but I wanted to consolidate operations so I started setting up some recordings on Emby which are having issues. some of the recordings just stop and never complete. See the log attached.
Emby has not proven to be reliable enough to handle all my scheduled recordings yet.
What is causing this? Never had this issue with NPVR.
Live TV streams unpredictably just up and quit with Emby whether just watching or recording. This does not happen with NPVR on the recordings or Perfect Player watching streams. I have been discussing the Live TV quitting in other threads, but now it is more serious because it is also happening in the recordings so this is NOT an EXO player issue. I thought it was an Android issue, but this also happens outside Android.
This happens from 2 different server installs on two different system. One is running the beta version. Must have something to do with how Emby handles m3u streams. At this point I cannot rely on Emby handling IPTV streams. Everything else works fine. I also have multiple m3u streams available from different sources, so I cannot blame the streams.
The fact that I am using the new version is not relevant because the few times I used Emby to watch or record m3u streams in the past have also had issues. I just never really used Emby to watch or record m3u streams in the past. Now that I am really testing it I see many issues. The few recordings I have had Emby do in the past have had issues with stopping early or not recording at all. Some did work, some did not. I have had one hour recordings show a 500+ minute show length and some only 15 or so minutes.
If there is any info, tests, or logs you need, let me know. I just want to get this resolved.
