Playing Blu-Ray Rips Off External HDD In EMBY App On TCL Roku 4K HDR TV


Recommended Posts

So I recently bought a Late 2018 Mac Mini off eBay that I just turned into a media server using Emby and I set things up (i.e. Server Settings, Media Directory Paths, Media Libraries, etc) for the TV Shows and Movies as well as Anime and Anime Movies all on separate 2TB External Drives and my Movies (Blu-Ray) that I'm using MakeMKV to rip them is set to a WD 5TB External HDD. So when I set the directory for these movies to the 5TB Drive and play these movies on my TCL Roku 4K HDR TV in the EMBY TV App I get a "Retrieving" loading come up and it "retrieves" multiple time eventually giving back an error and this happens with multiple movies when I try to play them.

So what's up?


Media Server Specs:

Mac Mini Late 2018 3.6GHz Quad Core i3 8GB RAM (64GB upgrade yet to be installed)

EMBY Server v4.4.2.0 (In Safari)

EMBY App v3.0 build 212 (TCL Roku TV)


Any other details you need that aren't listed just ask.

I seem to have (hopefully) fixed the issue. All I did was reset my network in the TV settings as well as disable the bandwidth limit also!! lol

I've read other posts having the same issue after I posted my problem saying to "Factory Reset" the device!! lol


But hopefully that will be a last resort option for others that have this issue.
