Question about Screen Saver settings

Recommended Posts

Screensaver not working. I've tried all 3 possible settings in emby server running on my synology nas (latest version). if emby is running on the shield 2019 pro no Screensaver comes up. really annoying with a oled behind. 

 

am I doing something wrong here? not so much settings in the app itself... 

thanks,

I did read your post, and i expected you would respond by saying you enabled it on the server, in which case my response is that the screensaver is a setting that is individual to each app, so in your case, you enabled it in the web app on the server in that particular browser. The Android TV app currently does not have a built-in screensaver, but it's planned for the future. Thanks.

I'm setting a lot of things via browser on the synology server - which have than effect in a app to play something. don't matter if lg emby app or via shield or on something different. 

and I wrote that I watch via shield and that there is no setting. 

does it mean there is no Screensaver on the emby shield app available?

was mainly the reason to pay 100eur 2 days ago

Apologies for the confusion. Many of the settings do carry over from one device to another, just not the screensaver because that's the kind of thing that you might want to be different depending on the device, screen, location, etc. The Shield app will be adding screensavers in future updates.

Additionally, our standard android app can also run on the Shield and is TV friendly:

And it has the same screensavers you're already accustomed to.

I don't understand. I thought I'm running the standard emby app on my shield?

installed via playstore.

this shield is not rooted and I've not changed so much for now. just installed the app. so how can your link be different?

I would guess version specific.  What app version number are you currently running?

hi I try to summarize

- I'm running android TV app via playstore on my shield, with version 1.8.28g I'm not able to have a Screensaver 

there's another android non TV version  with Screensaver 

this version is not on your download page, I've tried a lot of flies 

you have no version info on your download page nor any info somewhere nor have the files a version name. I have to go to your drop box link. 

than I will run aversion to able to update automatically? 

I have to deinstall my android TV app before and I will loose all my settings.. 

sounds more for nerds than for me but I will give it a try.. 

 

best d

I've installed it. look my emby on android mobile 🙃 

but, dim subtitle is missing and I cannot see any Screensaver setting. that was the reason for installing it. 

any thoughts? thanks,

I miss the "Classic" screensavers from ORIGINAL .. pre-Emby .. back when WinTV on WinXP or 7 offered some legit screensavers. Can we bring them back from the dead? Please.

I'm trying one last time with an easy as possible question. 

I have a shield. I have emby app Android manually installed and the one via appstore. all, incl shield software are running on latest software. 

- I need an Screensaver after x min while pausing a movie 

(like this post here 

 

- Screensaver from shield is working in all apps except emby while pausing a movie. 

- I've tried all possible settings

what is wrong here??!!

a screesnaver is not a complete crazy wish from from the future.

it's a basic functionality!! 

thanks d

Hi, the app supports screensavers. What version of the app are you running?

Hi.  We intentionally do not allow the screen saver to kick in while video is paused.  The app will dim the screen drastically, however after several minutes.

What is the situation where you need to leave the video paused for such a long period?

Hi.  The next release of the TV app will allow the screen saver to kick in during pause except during live TV playback.
