Playback pauses for loading in Plex

Post by wysocki »

I have my Extend setup to record shows in Plex. But if I watch it while it's recording, many times Plex will pause to display its spinning "percent-loading" disk while it loads more of the show (sometimes sticking at 33% for quite a while). If I just let the show record and watch it after it's done, it plays back ok. Tuner status shows signal strength at 65% and quality at 81%. In Plex I have transcoder quality set to High Quality and resolution set to Prefer HD.

If I remember correctly your Signal Strength needs to be above 70%.
