LG Smart TV: Emby Theater 1.0.9

Windows 10: Emby Server Version


As reported here, Emby LG Smart TV app fails when viewing Live TV and attempting rewind or FF controls.  Unfortunately, this degrades the Emby Live TV to only supporting pause/resume.


In Live TV mode, the Emby app really has no advantage over the native LG Live TV.  Please fix the playback controls for these expensive and beautiful LG OLED TVs.


Many Thanks!

FWIW: The version of screenplay that will feature this capability is in LG QA  now, so its not impossible to do.  I imagine its only a matter of time before the Emby client for LG TV can do this also.


What would be really cool would be having the ability to jump into a live stream while its being recorded.  Currently with screenplay, you must start the show, then hit pause to allow the live stream to get far enough ahead to provide fast ad skipping.  I'm working on this currently but unsure if its possible at this point in time.

Fast forward and rewind work fine on Live TV for me on my LG OLED55C6P.  I am running the Emby server on a WD NAS.


The problem I have and that I'm searching for a solution to is that the guide info for a selected current program that shows at the bottom of the screen is almost completely cutoff.
