Apple TV app not working correctly? Slow loading
Every since the release of IOS 11, many Apple TV Plex app users have experienced bugs with the Plex client, the most noticeable was the "cast" photos in the movie tile selection, thankfully Plex fixed this problem quickly, But more glitches over the last few months have become problematic to the UX of the ATV Plex app, I've been experiencing an issue with the Apple TV Plex client only when accessing movies (TV Shows works fine). When I attempt to access a movie is usually sits at "Loading" indefinitely the first time. If I let it sit there for a while, go back, and then attempt to access the same movie it will then pull up the movie metadata screen and let me play the movie. No delays or issues playing the movie once I get to that page. I do not experience this with any TV show libraries - only movies.
Another glitch with the Plex app, is the "RELOAD" button at the top right hand corner of the "discover" page, movies do not refresh (button is unresponsive)
Also Headline text (.i.e "recently released") appear BLACK???
Spec details are as follows:
Apple TV 4 - tvOS 11.2.1
Plex Apple TV client - 1.21
Plex Server - 126.96.36.19902 (running on a WD DL4100 NAS - 4 bay 16TB)
All media libraries are contained on the WD NAS
Both the Apple TV and the Plex server are running on wired gigabit network through the ISP router.
No other Plex clients on the network experience this issue (iOS, PS4, Plex Media Player, OpenPHT).
Both movie libraries are configured to use the Plex Movie Scanner and Plex Movie Agent

I've turned off the extras features
(I'm a Plex Pass subscriber)
I've already refreshed all metadata for both movie libraries with no change in performance. The server picks up all metadata just fine - the only issue I'm experiencing is with the Apple TV client.
I hope someone from Plex can help
