Sort order is a minor issue that I can live with in comparison to going to emby theater. Sorry about that.
I know we are off topic but here are some thoughts on the emby theate.
My initial encounter:
I downloaded and installed version 3.0.6.
First time launch failed, worked the second time. Since then it usually takes two attempts to start emby theatre.
The GUI is much nicer since my last look at it.
However, functionally it is just not there yet.
While in the live TV guide I press the record button once on a show to record, that works.
When I press twice to record a series a spinning wheel of wait appears and does not go away and series recording is not activated.
In recorded TV I discovered that my latest recording had need converted. When I played the conversion it look horrible.
I discovered that it was converting for mobile devices by default. I found no place to permanently change that setting nor a place to abort the conversion.
But why would it need to convert it in the first place? Does emby theatre not play .wtv files?
I tried to view the original .wtv file but emby theatre would not play it.
.wtv playback would be a good feature. It works in emby wmc.
Then I went to play a movie. No go, only black screen with audio.
I went back to live TV and found the same, black screen, audio only.
I restarted emby server a few times, reboot the PC. No change.
As a benchmark, set-up a PC with emby theatre and another with Windows Media Centre.
Compare the two for easy of use and functionality.
When the day comes when you can say that the emby theatre equals or betters the Windows Media Centre, that is when you will have it nailed.
