Plex vs Freeview Play, Nvidia Shield, Humax or Manhattan!


Standard Member
In UK, Have HDHOMERUN and Plex on NAS with Roku Streaming Stick and a second old FireTV.

Getting a bit of stutter + slow.

Thinking of getting Nvidia Shield- but wondering if Humax Aura or Manhattan T3 would be better.

Mainly record free channels, Freeview Play sounds nice. Have Prime, sometimes subscribe to Netflix, Discovery+, Starzplay

I do need to view recorded content on second TV, occasionally mobile devices.

Searching around I’m really not clear if Shield can install Freeview Play- or if Humax/ Manhattan would just be easierx but not sure if I can then view the content on second TV or mobile devices.

Should say, for Plex Ikm just using it to record OTA- no real interest in downloaded content.
