Streaming Plex Live TV on Streambar

I have just purchased a Roku Streambar to replace a Roku 3. I use live TV streamed from my Plex Media Server.

On the Roku 3 this works really well but the Streambar is constantly buffering this content. 

I can’t see any differences in settings on the Plex side, and don’t have buffering issues on any other device. 

Why would a newer device perform less well than the older Roku 3? What’s changed?

Re: Streaming Plex Live TV on Streambar

OK, solved it. Putting this here in case anyone else is having this issue. 

Default app settings where transcoding the stream. To resolve, in the Roku Plex app, make sure you have the following:

Settings > Video

Local Quality : Original

Allow Direct Stream : Yes

Allow MPEG2 : Yes
