Can I watch mr SERVIO recordings from Plex?

Post by brlowe » Thu Jul 18, 2019 11:08 am

I have a plex media server and a PlayOn server. PlayOn is used to record streaming shows only. I use plex to manage and watch my dvd library. All of this is done with a roku device on each tv. I have the HDHomeRun app working on my roku.
My question is can I watch my HDHomeRun recordings through plex? I would like to just watch everything from there and not jump from app to app.

You would have to download them from your servio (retrieve the recorded_files.json from device to find links), rename them appropriately, and put them someplace plex has access to.

Bummer. I thought there was a way to add the servio as a media library and just watch them.

I agree it is a bummer as I use Plex for remote Viewing also.

Request the Plex team to add support for the (remote) HDHR library. It is 100% up to them to care (or not, their decision) about adding such library support.

or hope Silicondust staff can have an easy way to copy or offload the recordings. I bought the Quatro Scribe thinking I could move recordings around easily darn was I disappointed. Maybe they will address this in the future.... fingers crossed.

There is a somewhat trivial existing way to get the recordings today. (From memory, so the exact reference might be wrong, but... ) parse the recorded_files,json output from the record engine(s) on your network, and use the PlayURL reference to access the content (which is what signcarver was saying).

Thanks but I was under the impression that I could just point recordings to Plex as I saw a Video by Lon Siedman that the silicondust guy said you could. I think I might just return it .. sometimes we err in buying something we think we need but we really have no use for ... it happens. I will just go for a Quatro.

Just FYI, we are very much working to make the SERVIO and SCRIBE available as a source for all our partners, including Plex. While whether they actually make use the devices is up to them, we certainly at least get the sense that they're pretty interested.
