Roku & Live TV Limitations
Currently, the FAQ lists some limitations of Roku with Live TV. Specifically, I was curious about 3 of them.
◦Live TV viewing cannot currently be shared. Only the Plex Media Server owner account can currently watch live TV.
◦Closed-captioning or alternate audio channels are not currently supported for Live TV.
◦You cannot initiate a recording of what you're currently watching in the client. If you wish to start recording, you'll need to stop live playback and then start recording.
Are these temporary limitations or issues that we are stuck with due to how Roku's work? Mostly I'm curious about the Live TV only being available to the owner. I ask this, as my intent was to cut the cord, however, I have 3 kids and cutting them off of live TV would be a battle I don't want. If it's going to be resolved, then I can hold out and wait. If not, I need to see if other devices will have the same limitation to switch over to. I have (6) Roku's in the house, so switching isn't ideal.
