Re: Flex 4k + External Drive + HDHR: how does recording work

I've been poking around unofficial Kodi addon and I was pondering how it might work in my setup which has both a Flex 4K and a Prime as Kodi addon requires DVR. This brought to mind a general question of how the Flex 4K DVR service would work with the Prime tuner I have. If I use HDHR to schedule a ...

Re: Flex 4k + External Drive + HDHR: how does recording work

Thanks for the response. I'm asking because I was trying to use Plex to test out recording on my 8.1 machines, but Plex doesn't use the HDHR DVR capability. I assume then that the HDHR app is the only option if one wants to make use of the DVR server, which I think is a winner. I worked with the gui...

Re: Flex 4k + external drive

Thanks for the Info, especially the drive recommendations. I've been using WMC for many moons. One of the better software apps MS has ever put out. I was astounded that the new XBox didn't come with a WMC app given that MS had this in their back pocket. This would have been a killer living room or d...

Flex 4k + external drive

I have a Flex 4k installed and working with WMC. I would like to try the HD DVR function. Can I add any external drive to Flex or do I need an SD product like Servio? Also, as I'll be rebuilding my 8.1 boxes and going to Win 10-11 so I'll be looking for another client. Any recommendations outside of...

I plan on cutting the cable and using a Flex 4K to bring in OTA feeds and streaming services to supplement. I would like to test the waters by hooking the Flex to my curre...
