Amazon Echo... Fails

I'm afraid that I cannot get the Echo to control PLEX to play TV shows... Music seems fine! For example:

Me: "Alexa, start PLEX"
Alexa: "Welcome back to PLEX, what would you like to do? You can say things like "play law and order special victims unit..."
Me: "Alexa, play law and order special victims unit"
Alexa: "I'm sorry, I couldn't find law and order special victims unit on your PLEX Server"
Me: "Alexa, what's on deck"
Alexa: "Here's what's on deck in your PLEX Library; law and order special victims unit and ballers"
Me: "Alexa, play law and order special victims unit"
Alexa: "I'm sorry, I couldn't find law and order special victims unit on your PLEX Server"

Me... reaches for AppleTV remote and selects SVU from "on Deck"

TV: "In the Criminal Justice System..."

Exactly the same issue with NCIS.

I’m having the EXACT SAME PROBLEM with ANY media (movies, tv shows, music) even though those files play without any problem when I manually find them on my Apple TV and despite my trying to use every imaginable title variation I can come up with… Alexa used to work with my Apple TV and PMS, but now she’s pretty worthless.
