Over the past week, I have observed the Plex tvOS client crashing while watching media, though there is no obvious pattern. When it happens, ATV returns to the home screen as if I pressed the TV button on the ATV remote (complete with the sound effect). Sometimes it happens after 5-10 seconds of playback, sometimes 3-5 minutes, sometimes 12-15 minutes, and the crashes do not discriminate between 720p and 1080p media.
Once dumped back to the ATV home screen, I can relaunch and restart playback as if nothing happened...until it happens again.
This issue only presents itself on the tvOS client. The iOS client has consistent and reliable playback.
- Apple TV A1625 (64 GB)
- tvOS 10.2 (14W265)
- Plex 1.9 (5581)
I have tried reinstalling Plex for tvOS. I have tried restarting my Apple TV. I have tried restarting Plex Media Server (before I knew that Plex for iOS works). Thoughts?
UPDATE: I noticed that Plex updated the tvOS client to 1.10. The issue appears to have been resolved.
