2.011 - Auto login last user and skip pin code - "Home" Setup

avelos156avelos156 Posts: 22Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Hello,

I noticed that the option "Auto login last user and skip pin code" no longer works properly with version 2.011. Tried in multiple devices (2013 and 2015 models).

I have a "home" setup where the "home" owner has a pin, some members have pin, some others do not have a pin, and there is also a local account without pin.

When this option is NOT enabled, then each time the app starts, it asks to select an account, then everything works fine.

But:

  • If the option is enabled then only the home owner can sign in automatically.
  • If the last user was a member having a pin, then the app says that it is unable to switch user and that the pin is incorrect. Pressing the enter button a screen appears with an empty box on top (in the place where the name of the account usually appears) and the app is waiting for the pin of the account. The pin of the account is not working again. If I type the pin of the home owner then the app signs the home owner in.
  • If the last user was the local account without the pin, then a screen appears with an empty box on top (in the place where the name of the account usually appears) and the app is waiting for a pin of the account. But the account has no pin. I cannot enter any pin code (pressing numeric buttons in the remote does not do anything). There is no way I found to recover after that, only fix is to reinstall the app.

Any ideas ?

Regards

    This is a bummer. I've experienced this same issue. This version essentially hosed the set up and as I understand it I can't side load the previous version since it's 2015 (SEK-3500)? Is the best alternative to move away from the smart hub app altogether now?

    With this final update, my kids can get access to my profile and watch items they're not supposed to regardless of what the checkbox setting is set to. Will have to remove the app so no more plex for the kids.
