I bought an RCA yagi antenna, a Synology DiskStation 718+ and an HDHomeRun Quattro (four tuners) tuner based on the expectation that Plex was going to be my go-to local channels server. I work in local TV news and want to fill my DiskStation with every local newscast.
I swear I have messed around for HOURS trying to get the Plex DVR to record scheduled newscasts and they almost always fail. It is so frustrating! Research shows me many others are having similar problems.
I don't know how I stumbled on Channels DVR, but I'm grateful I did. The interface is clean, the setup is simple– and most importantly, it works! I just love it. $8/mo.? A bargain.
Thank you development team for such a smart interface.
