I can't use Plex client to play content from my own server when M$ servers are down... Plex doesn't work under the guest account.

    Let's get into some details on your setup and what MS servers you're talking about. Not sure how/if this is connected to the guest account or what independent issue you got with your guest account?!

    Actually, there is a workaround!!
    On the Xbox goto Network settings -> Go Offline.
    Sign in then open plex, once open without quitting go back to settings and go back online plex will now work just fine

    Plex requires a profile to be logged in on the xbox one x before it will run which can't be done when microsofts servers are down. Does the above workaround work in this case= as I can't test it now because microsoft servers are back online and I need a solution so I would be locked out next time their servers go down.
