After an hour of fiddling with Channels DVR, Plex, and sketchy Docker containers, I have built a Rube Goldberg machine that makes my YouTube TV service work with Plex Live TV and DVR.
@ronguest it is pretty cool! Now I can record YouTube TV content to my NAS, automatically detect commercials for skipping, and play it anywhere via Plex.
Not every single channel is available due to licensing restrictions, but only one channel that I actually care about. Not bad :)
@toddgrotenhuis I’ll see if I can make some time. Quick summary:
Install Channels DVR from getchannels.com. It’s commercial, but there is a free trial for a month.
Set it up with your cable or live TV provider using “TV Everywhere.” Many cable and streaming providers are compatible.
Set up github.com/kevdog114... There is a docker container linked on docker hub.
Install github.com/xteve-pro... and point it at your m3u and xmltv that you get from the proxy
Configure Plex DVR by pointing it at xTeVe
