Multiple problems with Windows Store Plex App on Windows 10 Home

bazgrantbazgrant Posts: 4Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Windows Store Plex App Version: 3.2.18-77d94abb (3/17/2017)
Windows 10 Home Version 1607

Whenever I try to sync anything the app just crashes, also lots of times when navigating within the app I get "unable to parse response from server in ParseContainerAsync: XmlException->IOException->Exception".

Diagnostics attached.

Please can anyone help?

    I am hitting similar problems when playing music to another player running OpenPHT. I can't find which version of the app I am running but I have tested it on both a windows tablet and a laptop, the same thing happens every few seconds and the app just closes.

    i also cannot find how to update the app to ensure that I have the latest version.

    Diagnostics attached and help appreciated.

    By default store apps will update automatically. If you go into settings -> help 3.2.18 is the latest.

    Thanks. I checked, the tablet was at the latest version but it took 2 attempts to get into Help as it crashed as soon as I selected the user the first time.

    The laptop was at 3.2.14 and doesn't seem keen to update itself. Do I need to do anything to get it to update? I have tried restarting the app but it is still at version 3.2.14

    Go into the store, next to the search button, click your user icon, downloads and updates, then either check for updates or hit update all.

    Thanks, that worked.

    So the app is now at 3.2.18 on the laptop as well as the tablet but as soon as I selected an album to play on the laptop it crashed. Is no-one else hitting this problem?

    I have got a new problem now. This has happened before but suddenly went away. I am unable to scroll down the library list in the windows app so cannot select a library below where the user and settings section starts.

    I just did something with the cursor keys, which had no effect when I started trying to use them to scroll, and suddenly I can now scroll down the library list with the cursor keys. Is there some trick needed to enable scrolling or should you be able to do it with the mouse and/or cursors keys easily? I have no idea what suddenly got it to work. I still can't scroll up and down with the mouse but the cursor keys now work.

    @bazgrant from what I see in the logs, it seems the server is closing the connection while syncing:

    2017-03-19 10:10:00:5823 [41] ERROR - [FallbackAwareHttpBinaryTransfer] - IOException->Exception after transferring 950272 bytes from https://192-168-0-50.bfd335f8c50c410ba269ae4fdd27b63f.plex.direct:32400/sync/3fde3d10-3f9a-456a-b0bb-e6f754feb8ed/501fe0c435f632d4d6018986b3125c23784f1948/library/files/55857/file.mp4?X-Plex-Token=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.
    
    An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.
    

    also the error code 0x80072EFF means ERROR_INTERNET_CONNECTION_RESET which seems to point to the same thing.
    Ideally we wouldn't be crashing in that situation, but in any case it might be a clue for you to check what is happening with the server connection.

    @pombeirp thank you for your reply.

    I have since tried syncing with a wired connection instead of wireless and that completes successfully, should there be such a difference? Everything exactly the same, just wired instead of wireless.

    @bazgrant: I guess you'd need to do more in-depth tests of how solid the wireless connection is. It does sound like it isn't very reliable, but that can be due to any number of factors.

    Ok, a new Alienware laptop to sync to and getting the same problems, however, I am now getting problems trying to sync with a wired connection. I have enabled network logging and attached the diagnostics file here in the hope that somebody can please help?

    Edit: I can see in the log "Failed to transfer file with server response 401: Unauthorized", why would I be getting that?

    New edit: I have deleted all of the synced content and started again and now it's working fine - this is not the first time this has not worked great so please, what is going on? It cannot be the network connection as I have not changed anything, only deleted the content and started again
