Best Answer brianbsmith , 07 May 2019 - 10:25 AM

Thank you @Luke and @softworkz.  No thanks to Windows Update, my video driver needed upgrading.  After updating to 10.18.10.5059 released 

8/16/2018,  I'm not experiencing any problems on any playback device.

 

Thanks again for your assistance!

Emby Windows Version 4.1.0.26

Windows 10  Version 1809 (OS Build 17763.437)

 

HDHomeRun Connect Quatro 10717CA0

Hardware Model HDHR5-4US Firmware Version 20190417

 

System was stable and operating fine.  But after updating HDHomeRun firmware, apparently HW transcoding fails.

 

The symptoms are:

* Use Chrome to view live TV

* HDHomeRun log shows immediate connection

* Chrome "spinning wheel" for many minutes - no live TV

* After many minutes, live TV appears.

 

Log snipets:

(Live TV begins...)
 
I should also mention:
1) Before and after the HDHomeRun firmware update, I am able to use the HDHomeRun app for Windows to view Live TV.  The app has not been changed or upgraded - only the firmware.
2) Unfortunately, I also upgraded to Emby Windows 4.1.1.0 at the same time.  During troubleshooting, I returned the "system" directory back to 4.1.0.26 and restarted Emby.  That is my current state with the problems reported above.

Hello @softworkz Windows 10  Version 1809 (OS Build 17763.437) 64-bit

 

It's very possible I've misdiagnosed this?  It may be limited to using Chrome (Version 74.0.3729.131 64 bit) as my LiveTV viewer (running on my Emby Windows server).  I'm not having any problems with other viewers, including: iPhone app, FireTV stick, FireHD tablet, LG WebOS Smart TV.  Since I don't often use Chrome for viewing, this problem could have pre-dated the HDHomeRun firmware upgrade - can't say for sure.

 

When I try upgrading to Emby Server 4.1.1.0, the problem viewing LiveTV via Chrome on the Emby Windows server persists.  But also, my FireTV stick viewer (v 1.6.94a) cannot stream video - continual spinning wheel (after multiple FireTV restarts, cache & data purge, etc.)  So, I've downgraded to 4.1.0.26.

I would suggest updating and then let's look at the Fire TV problem. Thanks.

Thanks @Luke.  I have updated my server to 4.1.1.0 and have a bit more information.  The problem with my FireTV stick seems to be with transcoding channels, and not directstream channels.  The problem with transcoded channel is same as described above: spinning circle for minutes, until giving up on HW transcoding and failing back to SW transcoding:

 

Info    Previous transcoding attempt failed. Falling back to software transcoding.

 

See attached file.

Can you make sure you have the latest intel video drivers installed?

 

@softworkz any thoughts?

I'm not sure - it could be DX11 related.

 

@brianbsmith - Could you go to manual codec selection and see whether you got two versions of all QuickSync codecs - (1. _with_ DX11 in the name and 2. without DX11)?

 

If yes, select all QuickSync codecs _without_ DX11 only.

If no, plug in a monitor to the Intel graphics and restart.
