Emby Theater grants non-admins ability to cancel recordings (and My Media formatting problem)

Recommended Posts

(I searched for the permissions problem but didn't see it. Sorry if I'm repeating other posts here...)

 

I set up the Emby Theater app on Windows for my mother and was careful to not let her do any admin-type stuff, but she is able to cancel my recordings (any recording - movie, show episode or series)!

 

I double-checked the permissions and double-checked them again.  As it stands, she doesn't have permission to make her own recordings, or to delete shows or movies, but she can cancel my recordings.  I've asked her to be careful not to do that.

 

Also, if you use the large-format icons for the libraries in My Media, the app only shows about 5 of them across and you can't get to the rest of them (no scroll-bar or scroll button). I thought about using the smaller icons, but they're not as descriptive or appealing, so I just rearranged them so the 5 most common ones I think she would use will appear first...

 

The app version is 1.1.248.0, and she's running Windows 10 Home (with all the latest patches)

 

Thanks for your help...

I forgot to mention that her Emby disconnection problem on Roku solved itself without any effort on my part. I guess she got the latest fixes from y'all. Thanks :)

Hi have you explored emby user permissions? There is a separate permission to allow live TV management. Please let us know if this helps. Thanks.

Yeah, I made sure she has no management of anything, although I'm letting her download subtitles and do automatic on-the-fly conversions if necessary (but no self-started conversions).  I was very thorough. She shouldn't be able to cancel recordings, but she can. I can show you screen dumps if you need to see that, but (like before) I'm not going down there for another 3 weeks, so you'd have to wait...

Yes that would be helpful, thanks.

I blocked out her name for obvious reasons. I'll have to wait until I go down to her house in a few weeks to take screen dumps from her app (but you can probably imagine what it looks like)...
