What I Watch: Plex

In our home, we rely primarily on broadcast television for news and entertainment.  We use streaming boxes and servers as well.  Some content is available via multiple venues.  I want to love Plex, but I can’t.  It does a nice job presenting my media, but often applies the wrong meta data to my files.  There are a LOT of plugins, but the ones I want to work most work worst.  Hulu and Netflix are problematic.  Mostly I use Plex to stream files to TVs that have Rokus but not SMPs.  These are the channels I watch via my Plex server and why I watch them via Plex
