Installed OPHT on 2 different computers same result no contet. I'm connected to PMS, but only thing that shows up is search and watch later. I have OPHT installed on OSX and Win7, same result. PMS is latest version, setting should be the same as they have always been unless the update of PMS really changed everything. PMP works fine has full library, it's just not a good design so i'd prefer not to use it. But now I cannot even see anything on OPHT, so not sure what to do.

Any one have an idea what is happening or what to change?

I don't now how to get logs for OPHT, turned on debugging... but not sure where to go from there.

    so i'm thinking plex was fine till, as always, there was a server update. which i can always tell because all my apps stop working if i don't run current version of server. which is exactly what happened. then installed the update, and everything refused to run. loaded plex media player to try, which it is garbage, but it was running files in a terrible quality, which i still haven't been able to fix, posted for help a week ago no help thus far. then i spent a week trying to get help with no responses, tried to figure out why it wouldn't connect, or would connect with no media listed, failed, no obvious reason, setting are fine. In the mean time went back to vlc so i could actually watch something. Then came to the final decision plex is now crap and nobody helps you. So the solution is to pull my HD from my PC, put it in a case and plug it into my Mac. Use vlc and forget i ever used this, will miss seeing what is what easily, but this whole thing is a nightmare.

    I've had this issue before and it sounds like the problem is that you haven't set the LAN Networks on your server. If you use a web browser and get into your server, there is a section Network, labeled LAN Networks. This solves a couple of issues. First and foremost, your players/clients will see the server and secondly, this option is designed to allow you to authenticate on local networks without having to sign in.

    If you understand what you have setup, then it's easy to know what you need to input into this field. There is several threads on this in various forums here. But for mine, I have it set to 192.168.1.0/24

    Hope that helps.
