So is the Plex Scanner going to see any more development?

Not likely.

I have moved away from sage completely, and with new work responsiblities, and 2 little ones I find myself having little to no time to do stuff like this.

That being said though, I am happy to hand over the reigns to anyone that wants and will be able to communicate with you all / provide help / assistance on the code via email, gchat, or skype.

I wish I could take over development but sounds like we're both in the same boat. I barely have enough time outside work to maintain our SageTV system.

Yeah that was another big thing for me. I got tired of "maintaining a TV system". I'm big on appliances right Noe that just plane work without much intervention from me... Like the TabloTV we have been using for about a year now. Just works!

From what I've seen of TabloTV we watch enough cable programming to make it unworkable for our family. Part of me wants something that's less hands-on but I also don't want to lose the flexibility that SageTV provides.

Depending on how long our media extenders last I'm thinking a blended SageTV backend with a Plex frontend is going to be workable, we'll just lose commercial skipping. Just have to find an acceptable TV connected device. Tried the Raspberry Pi with Rasplex but discovered it cannot play raw BD video. Have it running on our Xbox 360 but it is limited to 720p.

yeah makes sense. WE have been solely OTA with over the top content now for 6 or 7 years. no looking back!

We still buy a few season passes like The Walking Dead, Gold Rush, etc. but all of them added up together = MAYBE 1 month of cable bills MAYBE...

I am in the process of completely moving over to OpenElec kodi and WMC with ServerWMC. I have it loaded on a mini pc and a raspberry PI along with the Plex Plugin and the WMC PVR plugin and that covers all I need. Plus moving over to kodi gives me the option of choosing between 3 PVR plugins. (WMC,Mediaportal,NextPVR).

That solution only exaggerates my frustration of having to maintain things...

However sounds like a cool idea.

Yeah it is great to finally have the same Interface on my Raspberry PI Mini PC and nexus all for free. My household is one of those that cannot live without cable so this solution works great. Plus WMC handles the prime much better than SageTV.

Does the ServerWMC interface work with channels that are marked "copy once" or "copy never"?

Kodi will not be able to play anything with DRM. SERVERWMC will serve it but you cannot play them.

I know someone who may be interested in picking parts of this up in order to (attempt to) achieve some things for himself. Sad to hear its essentially dead on your end as you no longer have use for it. Of course, time and other projects may get in his way as well, as he too is stuck in the club of having more time commitments than he seems to have time for.

Is there any way to keep Plex from removing everything when it fails to connect to SageTV? I did some maintenance over the weekend and had my SageTV service disabled for a bit. I forgot to also stop Plex from running. So when I went back into Plex all the shows I had synced to my iPad were no longer valid.

I don't know if it's a function of Plex or the SageTV Scanner but it seems kind of extreme and counter intuitive to remove references to shows just because the scanner failed to connect to SageTV.

That has nothing to do with the scanner or the agent, that is a feature of plex. If you have your library set to auto refresh and be monitored, when plex scans a folder it will mark things as unavailable if it can't find the files... in your case you turned off the sage server and a scan probably ran. no video found, so it marked them or simply removed them from the library.

Hey guys, I'm trying to get this to work out but I have a feeling that these instructions aren't entirely complete. I did note that the new scanner and agent are available in Plex but perusing through this thread indicates that there is more information is needed, especially if BMT has a username and password. Can someone direct me to what other instructions are needed to be followed? When I attempted a scan, I didn't see any new files that don't already contain season and episodes in the filename so I suspect that nothing is currently working.

Any help would be appreciated!

Ok, hit a stumbling block, I assume that I want to open the file SageTV Scanner.py with Notepad and edit a line correct? When I go into it, it's a little intimidating with no easy data entry locations. Is this what I'm supposed to update?
