The same place you just were to turn the visibility back on.  EMC calls it a PIN but it is just asking for your normal password for the user - but, for the purposes of EMC, you should just use numbers.

I tried both my current password and my previous one and neither worked.  WMC reported invalid password....but it's the exact password I used to log into EMBY on my HTPC.  It's not numbers but it works perfectly on the HTPC

If it isn't numbers, how did you enter it on the Xbox?

 

Please try creating a 4-digit numeric PIN (you can do this and still keep your other password) and see if that works.

OK, I finally fixed it.  I just had to change the password once again and it connects now.  Thank you

Unfortunately it appears I wasted our time.  Emby is super slow on my XBOX 360s.  I guess my collection is too big and the cover art is too much because it won't show most and it takes forever to show those that it does.  I tested EMBY on an older FIre Stick TV last night and it worked great....looks like I'll be buying a couple more of those and leave the XBOXs for the kids because all they do is watch YouTube

I think you will be much happier in the long run there.

 

Thanks.

Thanks for all your help.  I'm a real movie buff and collector and I remember Media Browser from over a decade ago.  I used it to catalog my small DVD collection at the time and thought it was awesome.....I took a long hiatus and came back to my movie collection, now HUGE back in November 19 and found EMBY and absolutely love it.  I finally got around to compressing all my recorded movies and then had no way to browse and play them in WMC.  EMBY is a great solution all around and I really like it on the Fire Stick.  You guys have done a great job.  I'm hard to impress but I am with EMBY.  Thanks for a great solution that is well thought out and feature rich.  I'm looking forward to watching all my movies now.
