I’ll try again…tested MrMC with .txt but not .edl…didn’t work (was also using DLNA).
We have used MrMC (on DLNA from Emby). I’ll try with direct and the .edl. If this works, it will be a perfect solution.
Edit: Note: previously, only tried on iOS, not tvOS. Thanks for the suggestion…as I’ve learned to trust your previous recommendations I’m very hopeful.
