    looks like a great machine... i assume it does a good job at transcoding?

    I don't think so. I hope it can transcode my old DVD colection, mostly in MPEG-2 480p/520p (so that I can use MakeMKV instead of Handbrake to rip it), but after getting an idea of its maximum transcodable bitrate I will use PoisonConvert to automatically verify my library and remux (or reencode) what is needed. Subtitles will be rendered by PlexConnect and not transcoded by PMS (I hope).

    Probably you need to delete the certs in the ATV3 and load the new ones that were generated during reinstall

    No APK Servers for my recently purchased DS716+II :((

    Actually I am running PlexConnect from OSX , but I will like to change transcoding an Plex to NASS.

    Does anybody has this model working ??

  • moody_bluemoody_blue Posts: 2,900Members, Plex Pass, Plex Ninja Plex Ninja

    Simply pick the last APK. It will run in DSM6. PlexConnect is not platform dependent. As you already have certificates generated in OSX please keep them, and after PlexConnect installation copy them to the Syno.

    Plexconnect: 0.5-17 is running on DSM6 DS716+II

    Problem now is it doesn't discover PMS

    To discover PMS it is necessary the following (please pick only one of these two alternatives):

    a) ATV and PMS are both logged in to MyPlex
    b) ATV and PMS are both logged off MyPlex and PMS is parametrized as described in https://support.plex.tv/hc/en-us/articles/200890058-Require-authentication-for-local-network-access "Settings > Server > Network > List of networks that are allowed without auth"

    If you choose alternative b) then it is also recommended to disable GDM in Settings.cfg (PlexConnect's parameters file)

    enable_plexgdm = False
    ip_pms = 192.168.1.10 <== the IP of the PC where PMS is installed

    Hi,
    Anyone tested PlexConnect with the DSM 6.1-15047? Is it compatible? (I'm still hesitant to update my DS216Play)
    Thx in advance....

    Yes, but I don't even check when upgrading DSM, because plexconnect is mostly DSM agnostic as it just uses a very simple DSM facility to install, uninstall, launch and stop a python script that is run with su privileges. Everything else is self contained within python 2.7 (a package that you install that is absolutely DSM agnostic, it doesn't care or use DSM) and obviously the Plex App. Everything that DSM facility does can be done in the command line with a few commands that you will need to enter only once.

    The problem will most arise from an upgrade from Plex, where they change its API to introduce new options and functionality breaking some backward compatibility, that would probably render plexconnect unusable until the old APIs are updated in the plexconnect code or in an python add-on compatible with 2.7 and the code adapted to use the new add-on.
