While I have about 35 channels exposed on my good DVR devices, here in Southern California I actually bring in over 180 channels. Multiple channels in multiple languages and several shopping channels, about a dozen religious channels, etc. What's interesting is that the total number of channels, not the number of those you've selected to use, is the limiting factor for the Stream+.
That 100 channel issue has, I'm fairly certain, hampered my Shield since the 14 day guide went active. As you mentioned, the trigger is available, not selected channels. And it's difficult to delete a source, (and deselecting channels from a source doesn't reduce them counting against the 100 channel limit).
After latest LC update, I deleted the data & cache from LC app, and re-initializing the app, and only selecting the Network Tuner Beta I am now getting the full 14 days. I tried this process several times previously but it never ended up giving me the full 14, was only getting 3. The suggestion was a full factory reset, but I waited because I have it set up perfect.
I actually use the Plex DVR and guide as my primary system, but like to have options. If I didn't have lifetime Plex Pass already, Live Channels would be my next choice,....and when the Chase Play feature gets added, as Nick just advised is on the way, it will be a great system.
