No external player with TV layout

jonbxxjonbxx Posts: 4Members ✭✭

OK, I have had Plex for a while and updated the app recently. I have had problems in the past with my cheap box not playing nicely with DTS soundtracks using the player in Plex. As a workaround, I used the default Android Video Player which passed through the DTS fine through the optical connection.

Since the update, I can no longer use the Android Player while in the TV layout. It works fine on the mobile layout but that looks messy on a large TV. Interestingly, if I st up that the player can use DTS in the mobile set up and then go to the TV layout and then back to mobile, the DTS option becomes unticked.

I can see if I can get an old version APK but, before I do, is there any way around this problem?

many thanks!

    Hello I have the exact same issue above, how do I access the advanced settings in TV Mode to enable the External Player. Why would there be less functionality in the TV mode which is a much better interface. Can some please add this Menu option.

    I can't use TV Mode on my Android TV box because this functionality is missing. Please add it back.

    Thanks
