Plex fails to start playing newly added TV shows.Ok, loving the new plex and the Media Manager and I was showing the wife just how much easier it is to get things going. My example involved downloading a new TV show, watching it appear in the show list and then playing it. Problem was the "playing" component failed with a "could not read from input stream" error.
So a bit of background with the set up.
- Media Manages the "Movies"
- Movie folder on external drive 1
- Movie folder on external drive 2
- Movie folder on external drive 3
- Media Manages the "TV Shows"
- TV folder on Mac Pro
- TV folder on Mac Mini external drive 3
When a new show is downloaded, it gets stored in the TV folder on the Mac Pro. The Media Manager sees it, scrapes it and lists it. The Mac Mini sees the new show but will not play it. I restarted the Media Manager on the Mac Pro which manages the TV shows and try again on the mac mini and nada. I restart the Media Manager on the Mac Mini which hosts the Movies and voila, it works fine.
Whether this is a bug or my current set up, I do not know but it seems to need the kickstart all the time.
