I'm using the current version of the Apple TV as my main living room Plex front-end. My server is running via wired ethernet on a mac mini. Usually everything works fine, and I can stream 1080p movies and TV without issue.
My main question is about the Apple TV interface. I have this annoying issue where it seems I always have to instruct the Plex app to "Reload" in order for items to play quickly. If I don't, I see the following symptoms:
- episode descriptions take forever to render, and sometimes don't render at all
- starting the video will lag for minutes on end
If I go to "Reload", it usually solves the above, but it's a bit annoying because I end up using "Reload" whenever starting the app, and whenever I'm moving from one time to another (i.e. episode ended, let's start the next one, or switch to a different show).
For me "Reload" sounds like a re-synch with the server.
Is anyone else experiencing this?
