Plex DLNA Server was flooding my Vera unit

A very interesting post over at the Vera forums: http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,28002.0.html


I was experiencing exactly these issues, disabling the Plex DLNA server fixed this but the question is: Is this expected behavior from Plex to flood devices?

    I'm having this same problem.  I'm running the latest PMS (0.9.1201). Hundreds of loopback connections and tons of traffic going from PlexDlnaServer to the Vera.

    Any ideas?

    4 years later and this issue still exists. Scenes timeout, and the Vera webpage is unresponsive with Plex running.
