    Unlike other Plex clients, PlexConnect cannot be installed in the playing device (in this case the ATV3). It must be installed on another, separate, machine, and serve multiple ATV2/3. The only piece of code to be installed in the ATV3 is a security certificate so that the ATV3 "thinks" that it is connected to an authorized server.

    PlexConnect can be installed on the same machine where PMS is installed, on any Synology NAS (probably this is the easiest way to install PlexConnect), or in almost any other machine where Python 2.7.x can be installed.

    QNAP TS-253A 4G QTS + PMS + QPython2 + PlexConnect 0.5-dev-161017

    TV Sony KDL-32V2500 (720p) + aTV3 Rev. A firmware 7.2.2 + Denon AVR-1604 A/V Receiver 5.1 + Harmony Touch

    Portables 1x iPad4, 2x Android phone, 1x Android tablet, 2x PMP on Win10

    No support via PM unless requested by me
