HDR-FOX T2 to HDHomeRun, my journey

MymsMan

Ad detector
I use PLEX running on a Raspberry Pi, it works really well, bit of a faff moving stuff from win10 machine tp pi, but could probably be automated
There is a windows plex server so since dvrontime and ad breaker both require windows it would seem logical to run plex there as well.
Unfortunately it seems that my Buffalo LS220D NAS server doesn't have a Plex server
My LG TV has a Plex client app but doesn't have a Kodi app so I couldn't use that without yet another box attached to the TV and network.

I was able to set up Plex on my pc pointing to the library on my PC but I need to look at the scanning settings.
It is is OK where there is series and episode info

but is no good for my BBC new folder where there are many files from different date but all S00E00 - it only shows one episode

even worse is my Movies folder (mainly exported from humax so the have so .nfo sidefiles)

I have no idea where it is getting the (wrong) episode and series info from - each file is a different film

Any suggestions what the scan settings should be?

I don't think I ever got to work without using credentials even if the folder is set for "everyone"
Yes after doing some reading last night I suspected this might be the case and after reading your post I confirmed it works just fine now with a username/password. Thanks for the tips.

@MymsMan If you don't have NFO files then I'd assume it must be trying to get the info it needs from the filename for the scraper. I am already renaming and classifying all my DvrOnTime content into a more Kodi/Plex friendly way to help improve scraping and to supplement any missing data where I can identify/deduce it. I'm working on a similar mechanism for my Humax content as well, extracting details from the HMT files and synopsis, looking for it on OMDB and then attempting to classifying it as a Movie, TV Show or Single recording, renaming it and creating an NFO file etc. I'll share it on here when it's a bit further developed for anyone who is interested.

I decommissioned one of my T2's this week and replaced it with a 2nd Quatro tuner. At some point I'll get around to doing some >4 tuner testing with DvrOnTime...
I have 2 quad tuners - had a bit of fun with TVHeadend trying to see how many shows i could record on my nas at the same time using both tuners - it was over 15
see this thread (6) Opinions on HDHomeRun? | hummy.tv
I have not had success on reinstalling DvrOnTime - I had and early build installed but somehow cant install the latest to have a play with so will be interested to hear your testing results

So far so good, although I have not set out to stress test this specifically... So far for me, DvrOnTime has been very reliable despite me hammering it for recording.

Do you recall what the issue was exactly? If you share the details hopefully someone might be able to assist so you can do some further testing for yourself.

Yes I remember your post :) I don't believe that DvrOnTime supports >1 channel recording per tuner, so 8 would be the maximum for our current setups, but that's a limit I am extremely unlikely to ever hit :D
