Useful Tips/Info

Internal and External SRT/ASS subtitles may cause a delay when starting stream (only when subtitles are activated). For internal SRT/ASS subtitles, FFMPEG needs to perform a subtitle track extraction from the original media before the requested stream can be started. External SRT/ASS subtitle files still need to be sliced to the correct start time and duration so even they may cause a delay when starting a stream. Image based subs (PGS) should have little to no impact.
Utilize your hardware accelerated encoders, or use mpeg2 instead of h264 by changing the default video encoder in FFMPEG settings. Note that some encoders may not be capable of handling every transcoding scenario, libx264 and mpeg2video seem to be the most stable.
Intel Quick Sync: h264_qsv, mpeg2_qsv
NVIDIA GPU: h264_nvenc
MPEG2 mpeg2video
H264 libx264 (default)
MacOS h264_videotoolbox
Enable the option to log ffmpeg's stderr output directly to the pseudotv app console, for detecting issues
Host your own images for channel icons, program icons, etc.. Simply add your image to .pseudotv/images and reference them via http://pseudotv-ip:8000/images/myImage.png
Use the Block Shuffle feature to play a specified number of TV episodes before advancing to the next available TV show in the channel. You can also specify to randomize the TV Show order. Any movies added to the channel will be pushed to the end of the program lineup, this is also applicable the "Sort TV Shows" option.
Plex is smart enough not to open another stream if it currently is being viewed by another user. This allows only one transcode session for mulitple viewers if they are watching the same channel.
Even if your Plex server is running on the same machine as the PseudoTV app, use your network address (not a loopback) when configuring your Plex Server(s) in the web UI.

Limitations

Plex Pass is required to unlock Plex Live TV/DVR feature
Only one EPG source can be used with Plex server. This may cause an issue if you are adding the pseudotv tuner to a Plex server with Live TV/DVR already enabled/configured.
PseudoTV does not watch your Plex server for media updates/changes. You must manually remove and readd your programs for any changes to take effect. Same goes for Plex server changes (changing IP, port, etc).. all media will fail..
