Plex tuner hog?

Post by go45cvi »

Considering resurrecting my hrp but I want to use plex and wmc simultaneously. If memory serves, plex had a nasty habit of stealing tuners. Is that still the case?

Plex does not steal tuners but it assumes all tuners allocated to it are available ... So if you are using a tuner in WMC and plex goes to use that tuner it will fail. It will not check for usage by other APPS before sending the tuner request.

OK thanks. What's the fail over on plex, will it try another tuner? Will wmc bomb after plex tuner query?
