Good afternoon,

I´m quite new to Emby, have been using Plex for a couple of years but decided to try out Emby because the support of m3u tuner. The guide shows everything right, the correct channel mapping and logos but it is not able to get tvg-shift from my m3u or/and xml link. I know it´s correct because i´ve tried it in stand alone IPTV-players and Jellyfin, but Emby does not get the correct timeshift.

Is there someting I am doing wrong or is this even supported? According to the support site for "m3u-tuners" Emby is able to use those tags and show correct timing.

Quote

The following M3U properties are supported:

tvg-name - Channel name

tvg-id - Channel unique id

tvg-chno - Channel number

tvg-shift - Number of hours to shift the epg (only used as needed)

 

Sincerely, Ivan

I seem to be having this issue if the command is placed in #EXTM3U, however it works fine if I place tvg-shift in each channel's config.  Would be great if I could shift my whole schedule by adding it to #EXTM3U

Examples:

Quote

#EXTM3U url-tvg="http://10.98.2.1:34400/xmltv/xteve.xml" x-tvg-url="http://10.98.2.1:34400/xmltv/xteve.xml" tvg-shift="-8"

Not sure why this would be necessary.  If the programme entries in the xml file have the correct time and time offset like this

Quote

<programme start="20210227230000 +0000" stop="20210228030000 +0000" channel="NHL08.us">

Then the client is supposed to adjust in the displayed guide to your local timezone, which Emby definitely does.

If the offset is not present, GMT is assumed.

Unfortunately this is not always the case, for various reasons.   Other guide software can read it from the header line, so why not here?  At the moment I just use sed and a cron job to do it, but would be much simpler if it only needed edits on one line.
