Do you think we're ready for more channels yet? :-)

No. Channel conditions and layout changes to the config screen are on hold now. I'm waiting for some very important things with the smartplaylist plugin and then i will drop my own channel rules and give you just a dropdown list to select a playlist. This will make it much easier for me to start working on unlimited channels.

Is there a possibility to include the tv show episode title in the osd when in play?

Isn't there a episode title for you if you look at the program details screen? If so, then you're asking in the wrong thread. I have no influence on the osd design.

there is. i can see it in the guide before i start playback and also by navigating to the details screen marked by the i indicator on the OSD. but if i were watching the same episode from the series out of virtual tv i would get shown the series and episode name on the OSD without having to open the detail screen. For some reason the year of the show is shown on the OSD and that isnt normally shown for a tv program, so i thought perhaps you had some control over this. Perhaps my question is, for tv series, is it possible to show the episode name as "Series - Episode"? whereas now it just seems to be "Series".

 

one thing thats more important, on some channels i see reasonably regular picture breakup. its difficult to describe it, it only flashes up for a fraction of a second but its not there in the playback if i watch the same episode outside of virtual tv

Will your incorporation of the smart playlist plugin fundamentally change how the virtual tv plugin plays back media? After playing with things for weeks I eventually had to give up on the idea of this plugin because of all the ffmpeg issues I was having.

Either your guide data has no production year or Emby's inbuild live tv doesn't import it.

No, i wont do such stupid things because it will look ugly in the guide and in screens where the epidode title is already present. Your problem is specific to the AndroidTV app. If you look at the web app, there's a simple and clean osd that holds all the informations. But hey, in the AndroidTV osd you get two times the channel number It's all about consistency. You really should report it to ebr.

There could be many reasons for it and i don't know how to debug or solve it. It could be Exoplayer, it could be timestamp errors in case of continous playback because i don't concat the videos so strict that it normally has to be done. I really don't know. Sorry!

It won't change the playback. This is up to Luke.

i'm going to go with the 2nd. its a fairly unimportant bt of information so i'm not too bothered about that...

@ebr, punktchen has identified an inconsistency in the android tv OSD as compared to the web app. please could you fix it?

ok, i guess its not going to help at all to let you know that i see it regularly in hd content but not at all in sd content?

I actually think that is a great idea, to combine the two plugins or extend the function of one with the other... Looking forward to trying it  :)

All of a sudden having an issue whereby despite a user having access to a library, when selecting the user through the virtual tv plugin no folders are shown for that media type. hopefully this is fairly self explanatory but i can provide screenshots if necessary. this is sending me round the bend as everything was working fine until i tried to add a 5th channel yesterday and now nothing works.

 

some other users that have access to the same libraries and folders can be used to select the folders through the plugin. tried removing everything, clearing cache, restarting editing the xml directly. nothing seems to work

Is this a new user? Sometimes it helps to change the users library access settings, save it and then change it back to the previous state. Otherwise please pm me the server log where you selected that user in the plugin and of course the name of the user.
