Re: Streamer service is not running

Thanks. I didnt fancy doing a factory reset as I would then have to setup everything else again. However I did find details elsewhere on this forums of how to use curl to reboot the vbox so have set my plex server to initiate a vbox reboot every day so hopefully that will improve stability.

Re: Streamer service is not running

Do you mean a reboot? If so maybe I need to schedule a daily reboot of the vbox, but how?

Streamer service is not running

I have got the "Streamer service is not running" error a bit recently and the first I know about it is when I want to watch a recording i scheduled in plex and find it didn't work. Can I be notified about it going down somehow? Maybe I can schedule a script on my windows Plex server to run every hou...

Re: Looking for recommendations for Android apps

I have bought a Plex pass for a month so I can trial Plex DVR and have installed the Plex server on my very underpowered Atom-based stick PC. I have to say I am very impressed so far, it has the interface I had hoped for from the native Vbox apps. The EPG channel grid is good (although currently onl...

Re: Plex on VBox

Do we still need to use the Plex Beta or is it in the proper version yet? It is just I see vbox mentioned here so maybe it has now moved out of beta?

Re: Looking for recommendations for Android apps

Thank you so much for taking the time to respond, it has definitely been very helpful. It does all sound pretty hopeful for Plex, I will dust the Lenovo stick PC off and press it into use as a Plex media server when I next get the chance. Fingers crossed...
Thanks again for your reply.

Re: Looking for recommendations for Android apps

OK I have done some research and you seem to know a bit about Plex so I will ask a few questions here if you don’t mind…. Basically what I want to achieve is to use a nice to navigate EPG to setup recordings of live TV, I do not wish to record in HD, SD will be perfectly fine for me (I would like th...

Re: Looking for recommendations for Android apps

Thanks. I have a Xiaomi Mi Box but doubt that would cut it as a plex server. I will do some research.

Re: Looking for recommendations for Android apps

I thought the vbox would be the Plex server? Are you saying you need a separate server? I guess I would also need to pay for a Plex pass subscription to use the recording abilities? I don't know much about Plex.
