Emby Live TV supports setting up NextPVR as a TV Tuner source. Once you have NextPVR setup and ready to use it's very simply to add to Emby. You do not need to setup guide data in NextPVR as we will set this up in Emby.

Click the Live TV menu option from the web admin and you will see a screen similar to this.

Click the + sign next to TV Sources and you will get the following screen:


Select the M3U Tuner option from above and more options will appear looking similar to this:

NextPVR will no longer creates an m3u file automatically so you will need to create this m3u file by hand.  See the bottom of this article for help with that.  Above you select the m3u file you manually create.


You can optionally set a specific tuner count as done above.


New Requirement to Manually Create an M3U file

You can create an m3u file in any standard pure text editor such as windows notepad.  Save the file to something like NextPVR.m3u.


#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:-1 tvg-chno="1",Channel Name for 1
http://IP:PORT/live?channel=1&client=1
#EXTINF:-1 tvg-chno="2",Channel Name for 2
http://IP:PORT/live?channel=2&client=2
#EXTINF:-1 tvg-chno="3",Your Channel Name for 3
http://IP:PORT/live?channel=3&client=3


Real Life Example

This is what NextPVR v5 shows for channels

And this would be the m3u file created for those channels
