    The subscription based Plex pass for live and recording TV EPG is category based and misses a default grid based 7 day multi channel EPG so I find it next to useless to use. For the price of the subscription alone I can buy a piece of hardware with a grid based EPG HD recorder in the UK. I am still waiting for my “free” six month subscription from NVidia, or is it Amazon.co.uk where I purchased the Shield Pro… neither, after spending 40 mins on each others helpline, seem to know how it works only that it takes 7 days to receive the promo code. Now that the 5.2 version of Shield experience software has been released, an updated plex is included. I had to manually update the included version in 5.1 using the Play Store. What a terrible user journey in todays modern Internet world. Not to forget, but in order to record Freeview TV, one also needs to buy the HDHomeRun Connect device, which is neat but is another cost for just two channels. All together a sleek gimmick.
