    It’s really a painful process to manually install from a download / much better off to wait the couple of days more that it’ll take for the port or pkg to be ready

    I'm running plex on a FreeNAS box and from what I understand the plex-pass version is not available to download and is only available through a manual upgrade. Are there instructions for this process?

    I just use pkg to install plexpass version but things haven't been updated recently. We need to update the port.

    The Plexpass option is there - I use ports so it’s a process for me.
    Portsnap fetch
    Portsnap extract

    Then to install ...
    CD /usr/ports/multimedia/plexmediaserver-plexpass && make install clean

    Updating is
    Portsnap fetch
    Portsnap update

    Usually there isn’t a lot of time lost between the update being available to download and the ports and packages being updated as well, but it almost seems like it’s taking a bit longer for the last few updates.

    Last update was September 26 to get it up to

    This is my favorite Tutorial. For Plex Pass just add "-plexpass" to the pkg installs and "_plexpass" to the service to start and stop it.

    I believe he was looking for the upgrade to 1.9.4 - and we are all stuck waiting on that

    for whatever reason I'm unable to update from 1.9.2 to 1.9.5 via pkg update... says pkg is up to date. meh, took a couple days after release to Freshports for it to be available.
