Is there any way to save more than 30 favorite TV channels or is that your limit? 

 

thanks

Hi, what screen are you referring to?

Sorry for the late reply. I'm referring to the "Channels" section in "Live TV".  If I go to Live Tv, then click on "Channels", I'm able to scroll through all my IPTV channels and click on the "Heart" of any channel, and that saves it in my "Favorites" channel list on my Emby TV program . So if I click and save say 40 Favorite channels, when I use Emby on my TV it only shows 30 of those 40 saved Favorite channels.  Is there a way to save and show more than 30 channels?

What Emby app are you using on the TV?

What Emby app are you using on the TV?

I'm using Roku on my TV with the Emby Plug in channel.  The attachment I've sent you shows Emby on my PC screen, and as you see the NBC channel is selected as one of my 45 favorite channels, as indicated by the red heart. Now when I use Emby on my TV through Roku, the screen is very similar to this. It shows a "Favorite Channels" column, but only shows 30 of the 45 favorites I've selected. Is 30 the default amount of favorite channels I can save, or is 30 the default amount I'll be able to actually see?

Hi.  It is just a limit on the app end but it is only on that first screen where it is showing a row of Favorite channels.

 

If you go up to the top of the screen and select the "Channels" button you will get a grid of all of your channels.  In there, you can set a filter to just view the favorites and see them all.

 

Please let us know if this helps.

 

Thanks.

 

Edit:  Well, that's how it should work, but it looks to be broken for channels so we'll have to look at that.

WOW.  i was all excited there for a minute, I thought you found me a 'workaround", until I read your edit. Oh well, hopefully you'll find something that helps. Thanks!   :D

 

One more thing, where exactly was that "filter" tab located on the channels page and, we are talking about Emby on Roku TV correct?

I see what you mean when you said "it looks to be broken for channels so we'll have to look at that".   I tried it myself and it did not make a difference. Thanks for your help though.

This will be fixed in the next beta of the app.

SO, I have the exact same predicament as described above by Jimmyboy.

 

Roku app, cannot get more than 30 favorites in the "Live TV" section. Was there a fix for this. Still searching through the group here.

 

tia,

Hi. The "fix" is as described in the post you quoted.  You can filter the channel grid by favorite and see them all.

Not really. if you look at the bottom of that quote it states "Edit:  Well, that's how it should work, but it looks to be broken for channels so we'll have to look at that."

 

if i go to my channels i have 5700 because my providers has multiple languages and countries. having a limit higher than 30 for favourites would be ideal. Me have to surf through 5700 channels to find what i want to watch is not so appealing.

 

thanks

Okay, in that Channels view, there should be a Favorite filter at the top - but it is not showing so we will take a look at that.

 

Thanks.
