I have created a "TV Shows" library and added the folder where my Windows Media Center records TV, so the files have a .wtv file extension.  I also have a few .ts files in the folder.  The wtv files show up on the iOS app.  They do not show up on the Roku app, the ts files do show.  I can search for the wtv files by name and they can be found and played.  They just do not show up in the TV library.  Does anyone know how to get wtv files to show in the TV library on the Roku app?

Hi.  Can you please show us some screen shots of an example?

 

Thanks.

I have uploaded some screen shots.

PC_TV shows how if I select "Episodes" on my TV Shows library I can see all my wtv files on my computer.

On Roku attachment Roku_TV1 shows that the Roku is only displaying shows that I recorded using Emby (ts files).

Under the "Upcoming" hub under TV Shows (Roku_TV2) it does show the most recent recorded wtv and ts files.

I guess I was hoping that wtv files would be treated like ts files and show on all the relevant hubs.

Hi.  It actually looks like you are looking at different locations in the two apps (they have different names).

Are you sure you're looking in the right library?

I was testing out some things with a different library, but it still is the same in any "TV Shows" library.

Create any "TV shows" content type library and point it to a folder with wtv files in it.

On the Roku app, you can't get to all the shows, but they kind of show up, like under "Upcoming" shows.

It would be nice if they all would show up consistently like ts files.

I understand that this might not be Emby's objective, but it seems like it is pretty close to working with wtv files.

What happens if you go to the "Episodes" view in the Roku app?

 

I'm not sure this has anything to do with the format of the files.  Rather, it may be related to whether or not those are recognized as part of a series.

How do I get to the "Episodes" view in the Roku app?

I only see "Shows" "By Letter" "Genres" "Search" options across the top.

Apologies.  That may only be in the beta version of the app right now.
