How to get content on dashboard

#1

I just installed Kodi and the Plex add-on onto a Raspberry Pi 3. Everything went smoothly until the Plex dashboard loaded and no content showed. While on the Home section, I just see three dots that indicate something's loading, but I left it there for over an hour and nothing changed. Going to the Movies/Music/TV/Video sections show the message "No content available in this library. Please add content and/or check that 'Include in dashboard' is enabled." If I go into any of those sections, I see my full library, so there's definitely content and it's connecting to the server - it's just nothing is showing on the dashboard.

Kodi: v17.5
Plex Addon: v0.1.3
Plex Server: v0.9.9.14 running locally on Windows XP machine

I'm wondering if it could be an issue with the server, since last time I tried updating I remember it saying new versions wouldn't run on XP, but I can't find any info on a required server version for the Kodi addon.

Thanks in advance for any tips and suggestions!

ps. Up until today I’ve had a Raspberry Pi 2 with Kodi and Plexbmc running just fine, loading up my On Deck list on the dashboard. Wondering if it’s simpler to just keep using Plexbmc. Any opinions on the official Plex addon vs Plexbmc would also be appreciated.

I thought plexbmc isn’t any longer under development ans stopped. Due to this plexkodiconnect from croneder shows up.
