Using EyeTV With Plex
When I switched from XBMC to Plex, I lost little functionality beyond their beta EyeTV plug-in.
But this was a tough hit to take because I split my time between the two programs: EyeTV for my live TV stuff and Plex for my movies and TV library. Combining the two has always been a dream but doesn’t seem to be in the cards based on El Gato’s total lack of interest in making EyeTV more of a media manager than it already is.
So I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was for Plex to integrate my EyeTV archive into its file structure…and how beautifully it played native EyeTV recordings.
Basically, you add your archive folder as a source under the Video submenu and…that’s it! Navigate into the folder and you can easily playback any of your EyeTV recordings.
Although it’s brutally simple, I’ve made a YouTube video documenting the addition – check it out below and post any questions you end up having.
