iOS Bug - NSURLErrorDomain Code=-1001 "The request timed out"

edited January 10 in iOS

I am using:
* Plex Media Server (Version (latest)
* Plex iOS App (Version 4.23.1) (latest)
* Windows 10

Connections to content in the "Related" button timeout cause severe lags when browsing into a media item. Read: It is unusable. After anywhere from 1 to 3 minutes, the "Related" button loads. This is for EVERY item in the library. Browsing out and back into the same media item still causes the exact same issue.

For every item I browse into in my Plex library in the iOS app, I receive errors included in the logs below while the movie information loads. The movie poster and fanart load quickly. However, based on analysis, it seems that information about all the "Related" content throws up the errors. If I try to access the URLs listed in the logs from the computer running PMS (just for testing), I receive a 401 Unauthorized Error. Here is a small snippet from the log. I trimmed the log down, but these requests repeat themselves over and over and over again until the "Related" button loads.

2018/01/09 16:13:34.737 (118 MB) (12099) ?? PMKServer+Requests.m:233 | Attempting recovery from error Error Domain=NSURLErrorDomain Code=-1001 "The request timed out." UserInfo={NSUnderlyingError=0x1c1044b00 {Error Domain=kCFErrorDomainCFNetwork Code=-1001 "(null)" UserInfo={_kCFStreamErrorCodeKey=-2102, _kCFStreamErrorDomainKey=4}}, NSErrorFailingURLStringKey=[REDACTED], NSErrorFailingURLKey=[REDACTED], _kCFStreamErrorDomainKey=4, _kCFStreamErrorCodeKey=-2102, NSLocalizedDescription=The request timed out.}

What can be done? I've been trying for 2 days to rectify this with no success.

    I've tested again and made a comprehensive log (with Verbose off!). The movie I was browsing into is 33909 in the database. Same issue where all information/pictures loaded very fast...except the "Related" button, which lagged for around 20s or so. The server is on the local LAN so this should not be happening.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    After more testing, the issue is non-existent on Android. This has to be a recently-introduced bug in the iOS app.

    Hmmm. No takers or updates? This is a game-breaker for Plex on iOS, as it slows down browsing by around a minute per movie.

    Until recently, I can not access my PMS from my iPad. I keep getting "Unathorized" or 401 errors... It's a bad joke to not being able to access your own media on your own network... Android / Web works just fine...

    @plex-devs: please, have a look into that
