Recommended Posts

Hi! I updated my Emby Server through the App Central in my NAS following your instructions (https://emby.media/asustor-server.html).

Afterwards, I went to http://localhost:8096 and I indeed successfully updated from the version to the However, when I triy to access my emby server on my LG Smart TV it gives me the following error "Connection Failure: We're unable to connect to the selected server right now. Please ensure it is running and try again".

Whenever I access the http://localhost:8096 in Chrome it enters without a problem and it says emby web is (see image However when I access the http://app.emby.media/ it says my Chrome emby web version is and not the latest (see image Is this related with my problem? Please, does anyone knows how can I recover the access of Emby Server in my LG TV?

Thank you,

Hi, if you can't connect from either the web app or our LG app, then this sounds like a general connection failure. Are you able to connect from other devices inside your home network?

You misunderstood me, I can in fact connect through both web app (I was just showing a slight difference on the web version).

It's only on Smart Tv that I cannot access it.

Yes, Emby App (Version 1.0.24) from LG Content Store. 


When I start the App, it asks me to go to https://emby.media/pin and enter the code to login which I did.


Than, I select the server.


I put the number of the server and try to connect to it.



But, unfortunatelly, it gives the connection failure that I spoke above.

Ensure your TV has an IP address from the 192.168.1.x network (look in the settings) -

Put the http:\\ in the LG emby client 'Host' box -


Host http:\\

Port : 8096 (as you did before).
