Can I use Plex DVR in Belgium? And how?


#1

I'm very interested in the DVR function inside Plex, but I can't find a specific answer to this question.
So, I have cable in my house, but I want to get rid of those tv boxes from Telenet (part of Liberty Global) and record all my shows in Plex.

But how? What do I need to do so?

Thanks for your answers.

Unfortunately due to most providers encrypting their channel you can't get an awful lot.
SFR you can only capture the radio stations. At least with a Homerun...

Oh, too bad :(

Hi Styn, we're in the same boat; DVR in Belgium sucks.

Only way to do this is to setup TVheadend+oscam with TV Vlaanderen (because they use CI and not CI+) and use the TVheadend channel.

The same problem in the Netherlands, Oscam integration would be great, but probably never happen.

Another way is to support card-readers, but I can imagine that's difficult with multi-platform, like Plex is today.

Hi, i'm just curious if there has been any change in this?

Hi,
So this means that with Tv Vlaanderen this is possible to have full DVR-functionality? (schedules, simultaneous recording different channels, etc) (i presume then you need 2 tuner-connections to have simultaneous recordings?

I think this is no longer possible, looking at their website, they also upgraded to CI+

To add to this, perhaps a unicam/deltacam could emulate CI+ in an Octopus NET? (not officially supported by Plex, but does work)

Hi, I plan to run a WD NAS server in the UK for my grandkids to watch on their Apple TV4 in Belgium.
Just looking at the Live TV and DVR options and wondering whether it's possible to navigate either of those options on the UK based NAS from their Apple TV over there. Many thanks for any advice
