Looking for DVR Advice

We are currently OTA with a ROKU 3 at both televisions. I am looking for something to use for recording TV shows to view later. I was thinking of something like a SiliconDust HD Home Run Extend coupled with a NAS. I already have a Plex subscription, only to find my current NAS is not powerful enough to transcode. Would the Home Run coupled with a NAS work using Plex?

I record all my SDPrime recorded progams on WMC using my desktop and can view via Plex on a Roku3.

I use a quad-tuner Tablo DVR with my Roku boxes. It is dead simple to set up and use and is rock-solid stable. I vastly prefer it to my old Windows Media Center setup with an HDHomeRun. It is way lower maintenance.
