    I dont have one so I cant tell
    but im pretty sure we need a kernel update for the new features like dual band wifi and the gigabit ethernet to work

    at least thats whats happening with raspbian and retropie

    No, Rasplex 1.8 won't run on a Raspberry Pi 3 B+. It sits at the rainbow square.

    You can try https://libreelec.tv/ with the Plex4Kodi Add-On

    Eventually. There is some OS R&D work going on to enable 1.8 to run on the new rPi3 B+ model.

    Eager for RasPlex on the Pi3B+

    There's no place like 127.0.0.1

    Just got a Pi3B+ - can't use it - lame.

    Does it work with the "Plex Media Player for Embedded Devices" img?

    No, does not boot with the embedded image yet either.

    @wdelarme
    I don't have a tuner, so I have not yet tried Live TV. But if I get one, I will let you know.

    RasPlex = Plex Media Player
    PlexPi = Plex Media Server

    I think.

    as noted here https://github.com/RasPlex/RasPlex/issues/606
    you can use the following build https://github.com/RasPlex/RasPlex/releases/download/PRE-1.8.0b+/RasPlex-1.8.0.0-573b6d73-RPi2.arm.img.gz

    as long as you turn off auto updates it should be stable enough until a proper build is done for the Raspberry Pi 3B+

  • benjaminwolfbenjaminwolf Posts: 993Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    Just make sure you have a proper powersupply.

    The current build for the 3B+ works like a charm.
    Not a single problem encountered so far, but I'll keep testing. It's also incredibly quick - from initial power up to streaming content is well under the 1 minute mark. Extremely impressed !

  • cossack1977cossack1977 Posts: 104Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    So how's the 3B+ going?
    Other than being a tiny bit faster then the RPI2,3 does it do anything better?

    Thanks

    i have both the Pi 3B and 3B+... i must say im not seeing any performance boost.. and if its there, i havent noticed it... i will say if you have a Pi 3B then a upgrade is not worth it.

    Yeah i'm waiting for Kwiboo to get the Rock64 up and running. The PI's are so far behind in hardware tech. I do want h.265, HDR and 10bit.
