This is a sort-of complicated issue.  I am not sure where the issue is, but I will try to lay it out for you and give you a couple logs as well.


I am running Emby Server 4.2.1 on Ubuntu 18.04.3 on the following computer:


ASUS M Series M51AC


Core i7 4770 3.4 GHz



BIOS Version: 0901



Display Hardware:

Command: lspci | grep VGA

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF119 [GeForce GT 620 OEM] (rev a1)

End of computer.
I am running my DVR to record on WD My Cloud 4TB (NAS) over a hard wired network from a HD HomeRun box.  
I watch the TV programs on several different machines, but last night I was watching the Green Bay Packers play American Football before the game was complete.  I was watching on a Roku Streaming Stick+ that connects to the NAS over the wireless network.
A little over 1/2 way through the game, the file stream started going through a pause and play mode about 1 second each.  I am fairly sure this is because one of the following or a combination of them:
  1. the NAS couldn't handle recording the TV show while it was playing an earlier portion of the TV show
  2. Emby can't handle both recording and playback of the same show at the same time
  3. My computer hardware can't handle both
  4. Something else entirely

I do have a 1 TB hard drive in the ASUS computer itself.  I could change the recording path to that drive and then make a cron job that moves the files about an hour after they are recorded to the NAS.


I do not know if this could help the problem?


I am attaching the log that I think the problem would be in.  Please let me know if it isn't and I can give you other ones as well.


Thank You,

Mike LaPointe

Your hardware seems capable enough (120+fps) on the transcode, so it might be network related.  There are a ton of these errors pretty consistently throughout the log

@mlapoint are you still running into this? Does this only happen with recordings?
