Gotcha. Thanks. Would be helpful to quote-reply or include a link to the post you are referring to in such cases, as leaving users to scroll up 250 posts in an attempt to discover what you were talking about is less than ideal.


For me, on one TV, I watch the most recently unwatched recorded items (DVR via Emby). This has been broken in Infuse for 2 years for me but works fine in Emby where it shows in Latest Recorded Shows only unwatched episodes. I watch them, they go away from the list. That’s the entire use on that TV. So, Infuse only useful to me if I can replicate the Emby function.

On the projector, I watch movies and rarely dvr episodes, and rarely live TV via Emby (always sports). So, movies I categorized myself into folders as I don’t like the way any system has ever categorized movies. So, I simply open a folder (say SciFi) and locate a movie.

I was away for a while and haven’t kept up with updates. Has this been implemented or still wip?

A post was merged into an existing topic: Emby Remote Control Skip Intro

I just got into the beta, excited about this feature, am I right in thinking it is the new radio switch when I go and add the files under advanced? The library mode switch?


fantastic stuff, especially hyped about DirectMode

if it picked up every new file I add to jellyfin, I would only use those two sections (they still are the most used lists though).

Are you looking for beta testers on direct mode? Would be happy to test it out with Jellyfin.

Anyone can apply for the beta assuming they are on a yearly or lifetime subscription. Monthly subscription will not work.

Thanks I googled and found this and signed up. I was added - waiting for the TestFlight email - good to know they go on Fridays.

I can’t see the post this was merged into. It keeps giving me an error message, saying it doesn’t exist.

It was deleted. :wink:

I just started using direct mode. I assume “search” isn’t properly added yet? Just making sure it’s not a setting or something on my end, currently it only searches actors
