Emby Server 3.0.5986 Released

A new version of Emby Server is now rolling out and includes a number of new features, performance improvements and bug fixes. Here's what's new.


New Xml TV Support !


We now have an additional option for guide data, XmlTV! Setting it up is easy, just add an xml tv guide data source:

Then all you have to do is enter a file path or URL to your XmlTV data, and you're done!

Important: This feature is free to all users to import 24 hours of data at a time. Unlimited data requires Emby Premiere.


New Channel Mapping Feature


This goes along with Xml TV, but can also be used with Schedules Direct. If the channels on your TV Tuner don't match the channels in your guide data, you can now solve this via channel mapping. Channel mapping is easy, just click the 3-dot menu next to your guide data, and select "Map Channels".

Experimental Hardware Transcoding


Thanks to the help of the Emby community, we've added support for hardware transcoding via Nvidia NVENC and Open MAX (OMX). You can enable this under Playback -> Transcoding.

Important: This feature is experimental and we need your feedback to help us continue to improve it.


Apple TV Subtitle Improvements


We've added improvements to the server's HLS support, which now offers a great subtitle experience for Apple TV users.
