Plex on 2 different computers

jngolds2jngolds2 Posts: 4Members ✭✭

I have plex installed on 2 different desktops with different content on both however when I try using the plex app on my x-box or Samsung Smart TV it only recognises the content on one of my desktops. Is there any way I can set plex up so I can chose which desktop I want to view content on? Thanks.

    It's usually in the player/clients. So you might want to ask in the specific player/clients thread. As this is the Roku Classic. Player/Client.thread.

    Are they both signed in to plex.tv ?
    Client apps normally find out about servers through asking plex.tv for servers linked to your account or ones shared
