@grizlyadams Did you end up going with xTeve? I know you mentioned running xTeve on a separate box - are the files (xTeve M3U/xmltv) local to the Emby install?
Yeah, I gave up on the separate install and using the files from that as the files have the uril embedded in. Xteve is running in a docker on the unraid server that emby is installed on. Xteve seemed to speed up the more I used it, so whilst it didn't take as long as I thought it was going to, it did take longer than it should.
It's taken a week of p*ssing about with this, and paying for yet another "death by a thousand cuts" subscription for Schedules Direct to get it working - I still have issues with some channel logos not working when using emby on the lan ( they work when remote), but for now it works.
Pretty much EXACTLY how I feared it was going to be from the get go - ie a royal PITA that cost me way too much time with a vertical learning curve I didn't particularly want to embark on....
Thanks for all your help and responses!
