Been having an issue lately that I have gotten more intimate with the quarantines going on. Over the past couple of days when an active recording on Live TV is happening, I selected the channel via the guide with the active recording and opted to play from beginning. Sometimes it will hang at the spinning circle, other times it will load a frozen frame and sit (my sever shows it is streaming with the time counter moving forward), and sometimes it will stream for a couple seconds then hang up (server side showing it is still streaming). When checking the server side it has sometimes showed direct playing and other times showed transcoding, however end issue is consistent regardless.

 

If I play the channel that is being recorded and play live, there are no issues.

 

I had a similar issue on my PS4 as well a few weeks back (previous server release) where I was playing an active recording from the beginning but could not fast forward or rewind without it going all the way back to the beginning of the recording.

 

Tuner is an HDHomerun Prime and I have a dedicated Readynas Ultra 6 upgraded to 4GB of RAM and OS 6.10.3, 6x2tb drives Raid 5 for DVR. Performance of the NAS is not an issue. 

 

My Emby server runs on a Windows Server 2008 R2 VM with plenty of resources on a SATA SSD with 310GB of local storage available to it.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi @mtait4893, did you try playing the recording from the Recordings section? That will allow you to play from the beginning.

I did that via the PS4 and I had an issue seeking through while the recording was active it would skip back to the beginning of the recording.

 

I will attempt this via the firestick and see if I get the same issue.
