LG TV - PLEX - unstable connection . Check your Connection

Hi

I have 2 LG smart TVs at home connected to my network. Recently I updated my Plex server to the latest version. Once I updated one of the TVs was recognising PLEX server however as soon as I click on the server no files are found. After some search on the net this was solved by adding TV ip in List of IP addresses and networks that are allowed without auth .

With regards the other TV which before the update was working fine. As soon as I select Plex server a prompt is being given that connection is unstable. However connection is fine. Moreover I tried to stream videos using LG smart app without any problems.

    have you checked LG updates as sometimes they don't post updates for a while.

    I have an LG without issue, it would be best to post model and WebOS version to gain consensus. Also have you checked the`LG forums? That's were I learnt about update options.

    TV-1 Model 55UB9500-UA this is the TV I'm having the instable connection problem, doesn't matter whether it's WI-FI or hardwired, TV-2 Model 55UB8200-UH, this TV connects with no problem and its using WI-FI connection as its in my Bedroom. I just installed MiniDLNA services on my Drobo 5N, no connection problems from either TV connecting to this app, so I'm thinking it's a plex timing issue, not really sure, I spent hours on the phone with LG and plex and no help at all, just wasted time, all devices on my network or 1GIG connections

    Have you set your LAN devices to Static in your router and have your TV IP added to server Network Without Authorization.

    Try Secure connections Options in Server settings.
