Re: Android epg and rec app unofficial

I have rated on Google play now. I couldn't see how to setup a series recording in your app. In the official app you can choose "Record" or "Series Recording", your app only has the option to " Record" please can you add series recording? I have attached screenshots of the official app and your app ...

Re: Android epg and rec app unofficial

Thanks for taking the time to write this app. I have had a play with and it is good.

Can it be enhanced to do series recordings?

Thanks,
Simon

Re: Looking for recommendations for Android apps

Yes Plex takes the EPG from some plex server somewhere, I cannot find an option to take EPG from the vbox directly. The Plex EPG is very good though so it isn't a problem for me.

How are others using their vbox's?

I am intrigued to know how others are using their vbox's as I find knowing things like this can increase my usage of it. Here is my usage: Currently I have a Plex server and have the Vbox setup in Plex for watching live TV and recording programmes. I use the Plex DVR to record shows onto the hard dr...

Re: Looking for recommendations for Android apps

Well I am very impressed with the Plex interface, however it isnt proving to be reliable enough with recordings. I keep setting recordings which then fail for various reasons like the vbox streamer service crashing and on Saturday I had a recording fail with this error: Jun 22, 2019 17:00:01.977 [11...

Re: Useless box?

Can you use MrMC to set recordings on the vbox? The app costs money on android so I want to check this before trying it.
Thanks

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...
