Apple TV 4th Gen Crashing Plex Media Server?
Just guessing, but It seems the latest TV OS Plex app update (1.22 from 1/11/2018 on tvOS 11.2.1) might be causing my Plex Media Server (Windows 10 x64 PMS Version 184.108.40.20666) to crash. The problem only seems to happen when transcoding is happening, but that is fairly frequent for us as we watch several interlaced DVR recordings that flicker if they are set to original quality. Original quality does not seem to cause the problem and transcoding from Plex Web or iOS clients do not seem to cause the problem. But if I watch content from the Apple TV the server will reliably crash after about 15-30 seconds. I've attached my log file in case that helps.
Am I the only one? The latest update seemed to be focused around Apple TV 4k and HDR, but I have a 4th Gen (non HDR) Apple TV (and TV).
Thanks! And keep up the excellent work.
ODD P.S. Following the first crash earlier this afternoon and when I first restarted Plex Media Server and started debugging/reproducing the crash this evening a couple of scheduled DVR recordings did appear to complete successfully. I suppose different services could explain this, but it was surprising and nice.
