Can't skip back/forward live TV buffer

Recommended Posts

2020 LG OLED CX

After playing live TV for a bit... while I assumed there was a buffer that could be navigated with the OSD for skip back/forward or moving the timeline, I found this just restarts the stream at the current live position instead of seeking to the new position.

Is this a known bug?  Or is this a feature that's either not possible or no plans to implement in the LG app?

I brought up this issue about a year ago, and its due to Emby using the LG player for playing video.    Luke mentioned that they could possibly look into forced transcoding, but as of yet it hasn't been done.  You can get around this and make the skip functionality work by lowering the video quality to something lower than the actual bitrate of the stream in Emby playback settings.  

Its definitely not an optimal solution, but unless and until the issue is addressed it is kind of a bandaid.
