Having trouble accessing your Plex skill right now

Skill is setup and linked, if I ask it to "list servers" it returns a list of servers, if I ask it to "list players" I get a list of connected players. However, no media playback/controls work. "Ask Plex to play XXX" or "Ask Plex what's on deck" all hang for 10 seconds or so, then respond "Sorry, I'm having trouble accessing your Plex skill right now."

A friend has shared his server with me, if I change to his server, music playback works great. If he switches to mine, same problem.

My Plex server is a Windows7 PC on my home network. Port forwarding is setup on the router for remote access, I have no issues connecting with other players inside/outside my home LAN.

Any ideas? Symptoms kinda make me think it's a router issue or something, but not sure what to check.

    Loads of us have the same problem. Still waiting for a response from PLEX which is pretty damn poor.
