Synology NAS / Plex / Live TV / UK?

Is there a workable solution in the UK? I have a Synology DS216+II (hardware transcoder) running Plex. I would like to connect a TV tuner so as I can watch / record live TV (using Plex). I have tried (and returned) a Silicondust HDHomeRun CONNECT DUO (https://smile.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07BFNRGN9). This would not work without major buffering issues. My thinking is that I need hardware transcoding built into the tuner, but this does not seem to be available in the UK. Does anybody have any ideas?

Thanks for your response. Can you possibly suggest a Synology NAS that would be capable of doing the live TV transcoding required?


Do you know if the HDHomeRun had a built in hardware transcoder, would my current NAS be adequate?

HD Home run is only thing allowing to link TV as we know with Plex. Otherwise you may get a better NAS (i5/i7 based) or consider getting an IP TV. But legality depends on country.
