There are two features which don't seem to work on the Shield?

  1. Voice Search: From the Shield home screen, voice search doesn't show results from Plex. For example, with Kodi, a voice search from the home screen shows results from Kodi and lets you launch into the movie details directly inside Kodi.
  2. Content from Plex isn't featured on the Android TV Leanback Launcher homescreen.

Any ideas how to get this to work?

    1. When I voice search for a title that's in my Plex server collection, it doesn't appear next to the Google Play or YouTube section, but it does appear a few rows down. Plex has it's own row.
    2. Previously watched content shows up on my Shield TV homescreen.

    What version of Plex client are you running (and what version of Plex server, if you use your Shield as your server)?

    Where are my log files?

    How do I properly name my media files?

    I have been searching for movies that are in my library.

    I'm now seeing Plex content on the top row of my Nvidia Shield TV home screen. But, searches still don't work?
