Configure live TV support
The hardest part of setting up is getting your TV tuner connected to Emby – here’s what you need to do.
Configure live TV
Open Emby in your web browser and navigate to the Settings section. Select Server Dashboard, scroll down and select Live TV under Extras. Start by clicking the + Add button next to Tuner Devices. If you’re running a HD Homerun Connect, click Detect My Devices and let Emby scan the network for it. Select it under New Devices and then click Save.
Add via service
Some services are supported via plugins, including TVHeadEnd, so if you have that set up as your back-end, select the Services tab to install the plugin. It should appear under Installed Services. Click the vertical three dots next to its name and choose Settings to enter the information needed to access your back-end – username and password in TVHeadEnd’s case.
Add M3U stream
If your TV back-end or tuner supports M3U streams, you can create one of these and connect Emby to your tuner that way. You’ll need to consult your tuner’s documentation for details of doing this, or visit http:// xmtvplayer.com/build-m3u-file for a guide to creating one manually. Select M3U Tuner from the drop-down menu, enter the patch to the M3U file and click Save.
