Emby support for TCL SmartTV 3.0?


Recommended Posts

Hello Emby community,


I hope someone can help, I have looked around the web and Emby community but have not been able to find a way to manually install Emby on my particular TV, TCL 55DP600. Sorry if this is the wrong forum topic area I did look around.


Specifications of 55DP600


Processor Dual Core

SmartTV 3.0 (33 languages) 

Native support: 4K Netflix, YouTube  

Web browser 

HbbTV 1,5 (2.0 update)



Product Specifications PDF



Manufatures Product Page



The inbuilt store page is a joke I almost wish I spent the extra on the inbuilt Roku version but was hoping to get around this issue once I had the TV in my hands, it is a good TV at a good price when I brought it, figured I could spend the savings later on a dedicated box if I had to (was £100 for the Roku version with a more posh bezel). 


Hopefully, someone would be kind enough to advise if It's possible to manually install Emby on this OS?


I have already spent a few hours trying to get a working DLNA profile to work and anyway the thought of trying to get my wife and children to use the inbuilt DLNA system leaves me cold and numb. I understand trying to workaround this issue may be pointless, I know I could just go out and get a Roku or other device, I was hoping to keep the complexity down to a minimum I.E. one remote to rule them all type thing, I don't like family Tech support, Tech support is already my day job! 


Kind regards,

Hi, Dlna should work, but it also won't have the great looking interface. If this is something you're targeting for your family i would strongly suggest the dedicated Roku app, whether it be upgrading the TV or an external Roku box.

Thanks for your reply Luke, just before I run out and buy a Roku dedicated box, can you confirm It is not possible to sideload Emby app onto this OS? Also as a side question do Emby have any plans to release the app on TCL app store? 


Many thanks,
