    What's the best way to do this?

    Currently using Windows Media Center and Media Center Buddy: http://mcebuddy.com/

    Just curious. Thanks!

    Are you asking if you can stream programs recorded on a DVR through Plex? If so, I don't know how. All my Plex media lives on my media center PC and is streamed through my Roku. I suspect the answer can be found here: http://www.plexapp.com/

    While plex can play the .WTV files it can't get the metadata and such.

    So using MCEbuddy helps and saves HDD space.

    There is a few other apps that will convert .WTV files but MCEbuddy seems to be the most feature rich.

    I will check the others out but so far MCEbuddy and Plex is a great way to share DVRed OTA TV on a network.

    Probably won't be able to stream copy protected .wtv files.
