If you’re using multiple devices with Kodi, chances are it can become taxing. All you need to do is support network shares to add elements to your devices. Now, if you have your watch list in sync then set up MySQL for connecting Kodi to it.

However, this endeavor is pretty easy with a Plex server. Once you set it up you can add your watch list and log in from any device with a little bit of configuration. Now, this procedure isn’t impossible if you’re using Kodi. However, it is much simpler with plex.

Assimilated PVR System

A third-party program is necessary to connect to Kodi. Only then will it offer PVR functionality along with live-TV. However, even after this is done, users still feel that the PVR isn’t a part of Kodi.

Well, there you go! This necessary guide states the successful ways to set up a Plex drive in a seedbox, along with why Kodi users can benefit from this.  So, try and follow the above instructions with precision to do the deed and connect the Plex drive to a seedbox.
