Dear users,

Since I was hired by Plex I have actually have had less time to work on Plex ATV client, Elan keeps me real busy with the rest of the software! As you all might have noticed very few updates has been pushed out. Fortunately we have had a bit of luck and W111BER has stepped up and started doing some PlexATV client work. His first patch which I just merged into our main tree is fixing server auto detection on iOS 5.1.1!

Hopefully he will help out enough so that this client don't just die!

Thanks for your attention.

Short roadmap for stuff to be fixed:

  • Icon
  • Grid view
  • Secret world overtaking stuff!


That's it :)

    Thanks Tobias.

    I would happily accept requests for new features but at this moment I am focussed on preparing a stable 5.1 release!

    Please feel free to let me know of any funky bugs you may find using the current version so I may add them into my system!

    Happy to be onboard!

    I've only recently started using Plex & some of the bugs you've listed are what I am experiencing, so this great news! Looking forward to seeing what you bring to the table W111BER :)

    Great news indeed, welcome!

    Also experiencing the same bugs mentioned, one other thing I would add is the Direct Play/Stream not working, I have to disable it manually which forces videos to transcode on the server side, even though it is playable in aTV. No really sure if it's an issue on the PMS side since it works fine streaming to my LG TV.

    Great!, and Welcome W111BER.


    Please promise; try to avoid any communication with Elan for the rest of 2012 at least, before he gets his hands on you too ;)

    Hi W11BER, Great to hear your taking over the helm. A fellow Brit here with extensive UI / UX experience. Just let me know when you want to make this app rock! Willing and waiting :)

    EDIT: This is to point out free design assistance :)

    Fantastic News! Thanks W111BER!

    Without a doubt PLEX on an aTV2 is vastly nicer to use than a ROKU, SAMSUNG TV, LG HUB etc. etc. One has to go a full client to get anything remotely as nice as the PLEX interface found on the aTV2's....

    Thanks again...

    Thank you everyone! Just finding my feet in it all at the moment. I am a user of this app myself so I too want it all working right and my coding mobile has lots of coffee!

    Thank you for coming on to help out! I just hope the aTV 3 jailbreak is on the way so I can take advantage of the awesome software!
