    But best to not update your server unless you also see a Plex For Kodi update. Seemingly according to several other posts, upgrading to server version 1.10 means you will be watching nothing at all on Plex for Kodi.

    Works fine with latest server version here. Also, 4K HDR works with DSplayer & madVR :smile:

    @bjoroy how do you go about getting that installed onto Kodi?

    I’m using a Shield with Kodi installed

    it is in the add-on section inside of Kodi itself.

    I was referring to DSplayer & madVR

    So if I understand the point, for example:

    • Kodi is on a Nvidia Shield TV
    • PMS is on a Synology NAS

    When I start playing, I am using Shield's CPU resources, not Synology. Am I right?

    Correct. 4K is an option in Settings you need to enable, however.
