News - Plex Cloud - Hosted Plex server announced

Hosting my own Plex server isn't challenging for me, and I imagine most of our readers. But, that doesn't mean there aren't other issues like upstream bandwidth, caps, etc. that make putting your Plex server, and the associated content up in the Clouds. Storage is BYOC[loud storage provider], so that bit will need to be worked out (I also wonder how transcoding will work). Still a very neat idea. Excited to see how this plays out. If you are too, head on over to Plex and register for an invite.

News - Plex adds DVR feature

If you're rocking a Plex Pass you can have a play with their new DVR feature. It also requires a supported Silicon Dust HDHR tuner, so if you have one of those you're ready to roll. Awesome!

Well, that is, unless you're Plex server is sitting on an NVIDIA Shield Android TV. That's unsupported at this time Sad.

As a BETA, there are a few other caveats (e.g. Copy-Once no-go). So make sure to check out the full release and forum post.

News - Plex server for NVIDIA Shield is live

Plex announced that the NVIDIA Shield would support their server a few weeks ago, and it looks like the wait is over. Adding HWA transcode + Plex to what is shaping up to be one of the most compelling content consumption devices (e.g. HDHR DVR support), makes me wondering if maybe I ought to have one of these in my AV stack.

News - Plex Media Optimizer

It's not a new idea, but for those with enough of space, it is a good one. Pre-transcoding takes the real-time burden off of your system, which can make a huge difference for slower systems.

News - Plex Comes to New Apple TV

Plex is on a tear lately. First Android TVs, and now the free app expands to the new Apple TV. Great job Plex!

There truly isn’t any other platform we’ve wanted to be on for as long as we have the Apple TV. Today’s the day, and we’re celebrating. The app is free in the app store for everyone, and requires the latest media server (note: you may need to download and install the very latest server manually for now on certain NAS devices).

News - NETGEAR @ CES 2015

NETGEAR had a lot to show at CES this year besides routers, and we ended up skipping those because with the rapid release schedule (AC3200 & AC2400 launched earlier) there wasn’t anything new. That’s not to say that they’ve been standing still in the networking space with several new product to enable more bandwidth around the house.

News - Plex Comes to XBox

Plex fans with an Xbox One (360 is "coming soon") can now enjoy their media on the Microsoft gaming console. I think this is great news and strengthens the device's position as a media consumption hub.

Plex for Xbox is currently available for free to Plex Pass subscribers. In the future, it will be made available, for a fee, to those without a Plex Pass. In addition to the Xbox app, a Plex Pass also gives you exclusive premium features and early access to new ones.
