Tv Tuner Setup With plex

4 posts in this topic Last Reply

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am running the LinuxServer Docker for plex and have a plex pass. I'm looking to setup up the Live tv and recording funcitonality however I am struggling to find out how to do this. I found the LinuxServer DVB docker however there was a comment on there recently stating this was being deprecated. Basically can anyone explain to me what hardware I need to buy and how to setup the software?

 

I was looking to just get a USB Tuner card.

 

Thank you in advance!

You need a Plex supported tuner; see here.

 

If you really want to make it easy get an HDHomeRun tuner and forget the hassle of internal tuner card drivers, compatibility and configuration.

 

Just connect the HDHR to your network with an Ethernet cable (and an antenna for OTA reception) and let Plex Live TV and DVR detect it.  Done!

 

I have two HDHR tuners on my network integrated with Plex.  No muss, no fuss.

Thanks for the help, I will have a look at the HDHomeRun!

You might want to start with the SiliconDust HDHomeRun - CONNECT QUATRO Tuner - 4 tuners off the start.

It's 149.99 but I bought mine a while back on sale for $99.99.
