Thanks for the info.
Actually, when I use Kodi on my Nvidia Shield TV, it works perfectly fine. Not sure if it knows that the Shield TV can decode mpeg-2 but it works almost as good (if not better) than an Xbox extender.
My goal is to have the same experience remotely. As of the last week, our Comcast region switched everything to h.264 720p60. Does that mean it won't have to transcode if being sent to kodi on say, my Galaxy Note 4? Since most devices accept mpeg 4 (but not 2). I know it is in a different container, though (.wtv). When I tried watching using plex and plexwmc, it works fine now and even is 60fps, but Plex says it is transcoding because .wtv container not supported, but audio and video both say direct play (when viewing h.264 comcast channel). Thoughts on getting this to work remotely? Thanks for your help!
