Through the years, Plex has evolved from a home media device to an all-under-one-roof entertainment hub. Among the additional features in this gadget are the streaming of pinpointed news, the use of cloud data for computing on the server and a fully functional DVR.
Now that the DVR is more potent, a novel feature to remove ads automatically along the viewing experience has been added. Over this weekend, this feature was introduced in the gizmo. There have been the fixing of bugs in the device as well.
By applying the feature labeled “Remove Commercials”, you can avail this option, according to CordCutterNews. However, there is a catch to all this. The process is tedious and may take a long time.
Also it may be something that leads to greater CPU usage that may in turn prove problematic. Yet if the computer you are using is a powerful one, than this may not be such a big issue.
On a smaller computer such is not the case and you should hold on for awhile to allow the CPU to cool down. This novel feature also transforms your DVR recordings on a consistent basis. Normally this is not a hindrance.
To employ the Plex DVR you will require a specific set of things. Among these may be included a USB Tuner and an HDHomeRun. This allows an antenna to be stuck on top of your computer to catch air signals. A Plex Pass subscription is for $5 a month, $40 a year and $150 for a lifetime.
