Full IceTV Subscription vs Plex Subscription
« on: April 15, 2019, 11:36:36 AM »
Hi, I'm new to the forum, and looks like I'm also the first one posting in the Plex messageboard!  Perhaps this is more a question for Support/Sales?
I'm using Plex on a NAS.  Wasn't very happy with the built-in EPG, but so far IceTV looks much better - loads automatically, refreshes faster and includes correct episode numbers.  I've so far signed up to just one month with the Plex subscription until I work out what I need, and wanted some advice.
There is a place on the website that says you don't get smart recording on the Plex.
Does that mean I can't record from the app, record series that haven't started yet, etc?
For a Plex PVR, what extra (if any) would I get from the full IceTV subscription vs Plex subscription?
Thanks in advance,
Peter

Hi Peter,

The lack of IceTV Smart Recording within Plex is more to do with the integration than anything else, Plex does not support IceTV's Smart Recording and Remote Scheduling via the IceTV apps and websites.

This is the main reason we created a new type of account for Plex or XMLTV based devices that doesn't include options that these devices can't use, so there is no advantage if you only have Plex to get the full IceTV subscription and it would be best to stick with the Plex Subscription.
Regards,

Daniel.
