Watch and record channels with no EPG

Micha BessemsMicha Bessems Posts: 20Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

I would like to be able to watch and record channels that do not have an EPG with Plex PVR. For some reason Ziggo Sport (NL) has no EPG and is thus not showing in Plex. Since it broadcasts Formula One it would be great if you could enable Live viewing at least and develop a way to record based on user provided timed settings.

    This is a limitation currently with our DVR feature. This is on all clients, not just Android mobile.

    Currently, meaning you're working on it? I'll gladly wait for the functionality.

    It is something we would like to add, but unfortunately I have no news when/if it will happen.

    I have the same problem and even for the same channel. Actually recording F1 races was the reason i tried Plex DVR ... but nope!

    I think it is what I would also achieve: have the possibility to watch channels even if it does no match with a proper EPG.

    In practice, I would like to access the .ts streams (labeled as they appear in the m3u file) even if the channel is not recognized.

    Is that now possible? How? Thanks!

    What m3u file? The EPG data is not in m3u format.

    My question is: is it possible to open video streams (via a m3u file) without having to necessarily match the information (i.e. the channel) to EPG data?
