Plex’s new beta DVR functionality now available on the NVIDIA SHIELD TV


Earlier this month, Plex announced that its server software could now function as a DVR to record content from networked HDHomeRun tuners. NVIDIA has now announced that its SHIELD Android TV box has received an updated Plex app that allows it to take advantage of the new DVR functionality. Unlike every other streaming box on the market, the NVIDIA SHIELD TV can function not only as a Plex client for content playback, but also as a Plex server which sends media to other devices. This unique capability, along with the updated Plex app, now allows it to also record content using Plex’s new DVR feature.

    In case anyone is wondering about the DVR stuff, it works wonders (outside of the shield that is, I don’t have a shield). It is pretty stable but man does it create large recordings. Obviously stuff like Hand Brake can fix that, but 25GB for a MLB game :)
