Can someone explain to me how Plex DVR and Live TV work in my situation?
I have an existing Plex server running on a windows box. I have a HDHomerun Connect, and a Plex Pass.
I have a number of shows scheduled to record and they happily do so. I previously watched these using OpenPHT.
I then recently crashed the party by adding a 16GB Nvidia Shield. I purchased it because not only could it be used to schedule recordings, it could also do Live TV!
I am now confused about a couple of things:
Do I need to enable the server on the Shield to view Live TV?
If I do enable the server on the Shield and schedule a show to record, how is it decided which server should record it?
Live TV worked for a little while on the Shield when it was fresh out of the box. Since connecting the Shield Plex client to the existing windows server, selecting a show to view in Live TV just crashes Plex about 90% of the time now. This happens with or without the server running on the Shield. The Plex Android app then switches to 'Restore Pending' until I restart the Shield. Anyone seen this before or know how to fix it?
