A couple of issue

weaverslodgeweaverslodge Posts: 127Members ✭✭
Hi Guys,

I have a couple of issues that you may be able to assist with. I have just installed a new client on a brand new mac mini and I hit a couple of issue.

1. First relates to the screen resolution - I can't seem to get the mac to get the resolution right with the TV (43" Pioneer plasma). Not sure if that's the problem with this or not but after going into settings and setting the video settings so that everything is correctly lined up on the screen it doesn't seem to keep that config across app restarts. I know that there have been problems with individual video/audio settings being saved in the past but I'm not sure if that's been fixed now or if that is indeed related to this.

2. To start plex I'm using the standard apple remote. It seems to start itunes on the client at the same time as starting plex - Is that a new thing or a parameter that needs setting. I've been running plex client for years and I've never seen it do this before.

Any ideas on any of this would be great.

Many Thanks

dave

    Not sure about your #1, my reso worked first try. Sorry.

    For #2, I think what I did was - open iTunes, go to iTunes preferences and click on "Devices". From there go down to the bottom and click "Forget All Remotes".
    I THINK that is what I did but it has been a while.
    Post back if that works, if not I will try and research more.

    Re: 1 - my Panasonic Plasma also does not play nice with the Apple video chip - too small or large an image. I now set the resolution to "overscan" and then use plex to set things up. Sounds like you are doing that - but for me the app remembers. Not sure what's going on.

    re: 2 - have you installed Cadelair? That seems to be recommended as well.

    The "Forget All Remotes" was grayed out as I haven't paired any remotes up with the box. It's definitely to do with the remote though as if I start plex via a remote session then it doesn't start itunes.

    I have installed candelair but I'm not sure that does anything to be honest. I haven't got it on a couple of other mac mini clients and everything works fine.

    Any other ideas.

    Cheers
