ATV - have to be logged in to MyPlex?


I did a reinstall of my pms and plexconnect. I got the usual error with no visible libraries and the cmd prompt gave me the "unauthorized" line repeatadly.

I tried to add my atv ip in my pms settings but that didn't help - still no libraries...

I finally got my libraries visible by loggin in to myplex in the atv.

Does this in anyway disable the directplay/transcoding features? Like, am I on a remote setup now?
