Bug Anyone, in PMS? Latest PlexConnect, latest PMS, multiple ATV stream fails

Hoping someone else can test, confirm, and help get this fixed.

As stated above, using latest PMS and PlexConnect. House full of ATV3's
When second ATV starts a stream, it causes all to stop.

Here is what I know,
Old PMS version works fine
PlexTrascoder.exe only spins up 1 instance with new PMS, old PMS would spin up multiple?
Other multi streams unaffected, only ATV's affected
When this happens, hit down on remote and you will see movie timestamp all over the place before stopping
It stops when buffer runs out, and starting the second ATV confuses the transcoder as to what ATV the stream should go to.

I've had to rollback to way older version of PMS to fix for now.

Anyone having this same issue or can test and confirm?

    If you have a single PlexConnect install driving multiple ATV3's this should not happen. Or do you have multiple PlexConnect installs ?
