Know this isn't Emby specifically to answer but there is an add-on in Home Assistant for Emby.  I've installed it but it just seems to show the Emby server exists, current logged in user, and that it's idle.  Anyone know what this is used for?

 

Thanks.

It doesn't do a hell of a lot in its current form, but it's a handy way to view the status of all of your clients (local or remote) and be able to control them from your HA dashboard

Thanks.  i assume because the only place I watch shows with Emby is on numerous XBox 360 devices I can't really use this?  It does show the playing movie, and a stop button shows when I play movies in HA but it doesn't work and errors.  Other than that, don't have any other buttons like you have above.

 

Thanks.

If you can't get it to work with home assisnt and really want to control your Xboxes then there are tcpip controllers for wmc that can command extenders as well.

Did anyone using this ever find a way just to show active clients rather than a big long list of everything that's ever connected?

 

I think it would be quite useful if it only showed me 1-3 clients, but not 25-30 :-)

@jriker1 I am using a custom media player card, which probably gives me more controls (which actually work) -- you should give it a shot https://github.com/k...ni-media-player
