Best Answer SHSPVR , 27 July 2019 - 05:34 PM

 

Hi All,
 
As an update, I got both tuners working in NextPVR with the help of @sub3 over at NextPVR.  When I imported the first M3U tuner into Emby, all was working perfectly.  I started running into trouble with the second tuner.  At first, I just increased the stream limit to 2, but that just forced the second channel tuning event to take over the 1st tuner stream.
 
Then I read this thread:
 
 
Figured out you need to separate the channels by stream, so I used
 
 
to create two of each channel.  Same behaviour.   Then I tried the advice from the following post:
 

 You need make it look more like this

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:0, 28 - Fox
http://127.0.0.1:886...el=28&client=28
#EXTINF:0, 185 - MSNBC
http://127.0.0.1:886...=185&client=185

Then in emby after add the m3u tuner edit it change Simultaneous stream limit: (Max number you have) so have 8 set it to 8 or what the case maybe be

This didn't work either.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?

 

TIA

 

 

You only need to add one m3u tuner here how should look if was quadHD the same apply dualHD or more then one tuner

Hello,

 

Quick question about the 3rd party Live TV plugins before I start trying to set one up:  if you use a plugin instead of a native tuner, can you still use the Emby guide and PVR functionality?

 

TIA

No, everything runs through the third party software. Emby just becomes the display. Why would you want to do that?

Thanks for the clarification Luke. I don't want to, but there is no way to setup dual tuners here in Canada 🍁 because our telecom overlords force us to use big, ugly decoder boxes to watch tv. The only way to get live tv in Emby is by using a capture device connected to the STB, a la Hauppauge HD PVR or Colossus. This works great for one tuner, but you can't connect two, at least not to WinTV.

So I'm facing a terrible choice: Give up the awesomeness of native Emby Live Tv and gain a tuner, or keep it and suffer with only one.

😣

Would that allow me to use the native Emby guide and PVR functionality?

If you set NextPVR up as an .m3u tuner, yes.

Intrigued. I'll give it a try. I know NextPVR will allow dual tuners, so fingers crossed.

 

Thanks Guys!

If you go this route you only need the next pvr software, not the next pvr plugin for Emby.

Thanks SHSPVR, I replicated your setup with a few channels and it works! 

 

Is there any fast way to append &client=<channel#>? to all the channels?
