Embergen is essentially unusable

With some minor exceptions Embergen is basically useless, the prime reason is Embergen does not have a real world scaling feature. When you export VDB from embergen and import to Lightwave the VDB is scaled by a multiplier of thousands's even tens of thousands which makes it impossible to apply medium nodes.

On the plus side JangaFX have said there will be a new scaling feature implemented in a imminent release, just hope that us Octane users will get the update.

Well I have finally managed to sort out the scale issue with Embergen but for the life of me I still cannot get smoke to show up. I can get the flames but not the smoke.
