A couple things come to mind ...  Have you installed / sideloaded any possibly roque apps that could be "calling home " or using your box in milicious ways?

Next, do you have your box configured to be accessing any other device on your network such as a laptop, PC, etc ?  They could be constantly exchanging data.

Lastly, could be one of googles latest updates where they are " watching" you constantly :(

Aside from these, try to do a complete scan for viruses, trojans etc using a well known software.
Hope these suggestions might help out.

Ok .. glad it has stopped. One other thing comes to my mind...
I have never used emby, but could IT have been trying to communicate with other systems on your network?

That crossed my mind yes but when i did a factory reset i did not install emby and it was still doing it so my guess is it was something wrong with the firmware/android
