Hi all I'm a newbie with Emby, have some experience with other software 

So I've just setup the media server and thanks to @Luke I've got the live tv  working  also 

Everything works fine via the web gui on my macbook using chrome.

 

But now I want to start using the emby app on my apple tv

Want to use the favorites to get a smaller list of TV stations, on the web interface that is working.

But that is not working on the apple TV App

When I go to favorieten  favorites 😉 ( I have dutch version 15.0 (2) nl-NL running, due to settings on apple TV  I will only see my favorite movies. 

When going to the channels of live TV there is not an option to use a filter, like in the web interface, so I just have a huge list of thousands of TV channels 

Opening the guide I see  my favorites at the top , but they are not sorted on title, but on the channel number, I was not expecting that behaviour.

Is this the way it should work, or did I run into a bug ?

Is there a way to get a filtered channel list ?

regards

 

Fokke

We'll need more info here. Do you mean the Favorites tab from the home screen? I can confirm that I have many different types of favorites here on my setup.

This is an enhancement we haven't gotten in the Apple TV app but I'll get it into our next beta.

Sorry  @Luke  and  @corey I'm not clear enough ☺️

I've  created favorites in the web interface on my pc to see only my favorite tv channels and not all 30k+ channels,  that worked nicely on the pc

The screenshot web interface shows the live tv channels filtered, (my favorites).

I would like to have that  kind of filtering also on the apple tv, 

When I select a channel on the apple tv I can see that iIve made that a favorite on the pc.

The data is there but on the apple tv is not a setting or  a filter option in the  interface.

The screenshot Apple tv of the favorites in the main menu,  shows only favorite movies not the tv channels.

And with the Live TV there is not an button/link to favorites or option to filter

The screenshot with live tv is unfiltered  and there is not a filter option , so it shows all channels including the Video on Demand my provider  (https://kemoiptv.com/) has 😅 and that is a lot  about 30k+ channels .

So would like to be able to filter on the apple tv app just like on the web interface. I'm thinking about creating a  m3u myself but when something interesting happens in the world I'll always try to go to the news channels of that country,  but I'm not sure if the system can handle two m3u list and display them seperate

I've also added a screen shot that is from GSE SMART IPTV LITE i have on my phone, I have the pro on my apple tv and there is the complete standard list split up by country, based on the group-title in the  content of the m3u list.

That would already be some kind of helpful getting split list based on this but would mean two to three clicks and some scrolling

#EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="ZiggoSportSelect.nl" tvg-name="NL: Ziggo Sport Select FHD 1080" tvg-logo="" group-title="NETHERLAND",NL: Ziggo Sport Select FHD 1080

#EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="SBS9.nl" tvg-name="NL: SBS 9" tvg-logo="" group-title="NETHERLAND",NL: SBS 9

Thanks for the detailed screenshots! As I believe I mentioned previously being able to filter to favorite channels in the Live TV library will land in the next release. We'll work on getting favorite channels into the Home favorites screen as well.
