Live Tile; how was it fixed?

Recommended Posts

I noticed for ages the Live tile did nothing, but I'm not sure it was fully broken, because I think only when I added a new show did it work, and only once to announce the new episode being added, and then never again until I added another.

 

So what was wrong with the live tile exactly? It's still not working for me, but I think maybe my expectations of what it should do are wrong. Do I need to have it running in the background?

It's fixed in the sense that if the server adds new data, the tile updates without the need of entering the app.

I haven't seen that happen. Is it supposed to run in the background? When I started the new version, it wanted to do so, I and I already have a bunch of other apps and couldnt pick one at the time, but don't know how to enable it anyway.

Just bring out the charms menu and click settings -> permissions and enable the lockscreen feature and you should be good to go.

My live tile has never worked.

 

I just put Emby on a new tablet but still no live tile. I'm not that bothered, it just doesn't look as nice or give info as my Netflix or Plex tiles do

The live-tile only works on win8.1 machines for the moment. I haven't gotten around looking on the win10 code for it.

No problem and thanks for the info...

 

it's saves me trawling through the settings just in case I missed anything. For me the subtitle size in would be more important.

I guess that is why it doesn't work for me. Has options to turn it on and off but doesn't do anything when on.
