5.0 out of 5 stars Works with PLEX DVR
By J0hn on September 2, 2016
PLEX DVR (beta) has just been released to Plex Pass Members

There are only two 'approved' devices at this point, and this is one of them - which is why I bought it.

The PLEX DVR software allows you to schedule recordings on your PLEX Server. Once you setup the DVR in Plex (it was really easy to do - google 'Plex DVR') PLEX will download the 'programming guide' info for the channels that you get. Then it is just a matter of clicking on the show and setting up the recording options for it

Note - I am using this with an Over the Air Antenna. I am in S Cal and I can get about 140 digital channels from the Los Angeles area, about 15 are the ones that I want to watch - main channels like ABS, CBS, etc

I only got this working this morning but so far I have been very pleased. It was very easy to add to my existing Plex Media Server and I am really surprised how the picture quality it is. I am getting ready to 'cut the cord' in another 6 months or so when my Dish subscription ends out, and this looks like a pretty good way to go - especially if you are already a PLEX user

Edit to add - someone asked if this would record two channels at the same time. I noticed this morning that I had it set to record some kids shows in PLEX and sure enough it is recording these two channels at the same time. Also, I was very pleased with the "Gracenote TV Guide" that PLEX uses. For example, I saw the "Commander in Chief" debate was on tonight. I went into Plex and started typing Commander in the search bar, an sure enough it pulled up the listing and I just clicked on it to set up a recording.
