PlexConnect on ATV3: Can'T play content
I finally configured PlexConnect, and it’s… almost working! Kudos to the PlexConnect and OpenPlex teams, this is amazing and exactly what I was looking for!
Installation was not as easy as expected. I first tried the PlexConnect installer but never got it to work. I then found out about OpenPlex and got a couple steps farther. I got stuck with an AppleTV 3 that would not let me enter an alternative certificate location (Pressing Play did not work). I eventually stumbled upon a page about Apple Configurator 2 (https://forums.plex.tv/discussion/201887/apple-configurator-2-how-2) and installed the files with a USB cable.
That done I managed to get Trailers to display all the content my Plex server content. Quite excited almost there!
All the details are below.
Problem 1) This is a minor one: I’m not seeing any thumbnails in list or grid view. Are those supposed to take a while to download (quite a big library)? Or do is there a setting I need to look into in PMS.
FYI if I select a movie or TV series I do see its art/posters.
If you have advice please let me know.
Problem 2) Whatever movie/TV show I pick, when I click on the Play button I get an error message: « An Error occurred loading this content ».
FYI PMS and ATV are connected to the same router with a cable, and I don’t have remote access enabled (can’t figure out the routing issue, probably a double NAT because that router is plugged to my ISP’s router).
Thanks for your help and thanks to everyone who are making this happen!
