Tutorial: PlexConnect with DD-WRT Router
The Idea behind this is simple: The router intercepts all connections to trailers.apple.com and reroutes them to the PlexConnect server.
To achive this, first male shure, that PlexConnect works in the traditional way, with manually configuredd AppleTV.
Then, in DD-WRT, click the services-tab and under DNS make shure, that DNSmasq is enabled (should be on by default).
Under additional-options add the following line:
After a reboot of the router all should be done. Start your AppleTV, start the Trailers app and enjoy Plex in all it's glory…
I hope some of you guys can use this...
P.S. This should be possible with other Routers as well, I don't know any options for other Routers, but we could start a List here…
