Hello, I have recently started working on making my Google Home's be able to request a movie to be played on my Shield. I have read other posts on the Emby app needing to be open and ready to go when you send the command, a bit disappointing but getting that out of the way as a potential reason why I am having challenges. Connect is setup and I can reach it via apps, browsers, and multiple devices. I have linked the Emby Home app, I selected my shield as the default device and was off and running.
Emby home does not recognize the shield as my default device, meaning, I have to say Okay Google, play Movie title on the Shield. If I do not tell it on the Shield, it asks me to repeat the command again as if it missed something, there are a few different phrases but they all tell me to repeat it again. Would love a fix for this as it would be much easier to just say the movie name.
Second finding, if I tell it, Okay Google, tell Emby home to play movie title on the shield, it gives me the exact same results. It does not matter what title I tell it, movie, TV, it does not make a difference, I get this result:
1. The girl on the train 2. The last days on Mars 3. Paranormal Activity 4. Doing Time on Maple Drive 5. Pirates of the Caribbean, On Stranger Tides 6. The Only Living Boy in New York 7. On the Inside
I cannot for the life of me figure out why it is selecting those titles, they are not ones I recently watched, added, are set to continue watching, or made any changes to, it just seems to randomly return those results? On a positive note, if my Shield is awake and the Emby app is open, it will start playing one of those 7 if I select them.
I have done an hour or two of searching through the forums here but I have not seen these problems.
Any help is appreciated!
