Minor changes to an excellent media server system. Download links and more details at


Restructured Live TV Database

The live TV database has been significantly improved, making it faster for our apps to retrieve guide information. In addition, the server is longer dependent on startup execution of the Guide refresh scheduled task, which will allow you to get into Live TV immediately after startup.

Faster Live TV Start Time

Up until now we have been probing live TV streams for media information. On some servers this has been taking a long time, so we’ve removed it. Expect live tv to start faster now.

Emby Connect Fixes

There have been some problems reported with linking users to Emby Connect and we’re happy to say they’ve been resolved.

DLNA Playback Fixes

Thanks to nullpointer, some fixes have been added that resolves playback issues with Samsung TV’s, Sony, Panasonic, and others.
