No problems with the file/folder structure, problems are mostly down to the TV, I like and dislike Plex somethings about it don't sit well with me. I'm trying out Video Station on my Synology NAS at the moment.
Been looking at Homerun, what do you think of it for ease of use/toppy comparison ?

The trouble with using Plex with HDHomeRun is to record you need a Plex pass ( which I'm not prepared to pay)
My NAS app, Video Station can use HDHome to record ( same idea as with Plex) and provides an EPG. Just wondered how you find the HDHomeRun Quad for ease of use compared to the Toppy ?
