Hi,

Emby theatre (desktop) just started doing this a week ago, it didn't do this before.

I have emby theatre ticked to start with windows, which it does. Now it's starting in a window, and as I am running at 4k resolution, the maximise button is tiny and fiddly to click on.

Also if you turn the TV off (connected via HDMI) and on ago, it goes back into a small window again.

Both are frustrating, especially when it's in a window at boot up.

How do I fix both please?

Hi,

 

You didn't give me install instructions, so i copied over the contents of that zip and overwrite the same  files and folders in my emby theater folder. A x86 folder didn't exist before, but i copied that over too.

 

Now it goes full screen on boot, but if you turn the HDMI connected TV off and on, it goes back to a window still :( (as attached)

 

P.S some additional emby theater feedback/improvements:

  1. As emby theater loads quicker than emby server does in the background (both on same PC), emby theater sits on the 'select a server' screen. You should make emby theater allow to select a 'default' server in options, and keep retrying to connect to that server, so it doesn't sit on the 'select a server' screen.
  2. Add a 'Restart' button next to 'Shutdown' button.

This will happen with just about any app though.

Mediacenter doesn't,and emby theater didn't upto a week ago.

Do you not have a fix for this?

I don't have an immediate fix for turning on and off the HDMI source. For most it has probably always been that way. It is something that will require more research.

1 extra question, emby server automatically updates itself, does emby theatre (desktop)? or you have to update manually?
