Some explanation of my setup.
Originally ran on a Netgear ReadyNAS 102,
Now on XPenology on I5 7400 + 16GB RAM
PLEX install on Netgear was a download from PLEX,
PLEX install on XPenology at the moment, standard Package install from Synology site.
(So very little similarity there)
How I get my media, download via torrent, convert all to MP4 using iSkysoft Video Converter, then upload to NAS.
(coded to started MP4 settings for output: H.264).
Problem: I have regular occurrences where I stay play a TV series episode for it to just show me the first frame of the episode and then nothing more, with the timer stuck at 0:00, I can forward to any point, screen stays the same.
I'll normally then go onto my Samsung TV and point it directly to the PLEX service, which will then play the stream.
Oops... ye I run the PLEX app on a ApplyTV, connected via 100Mbit cable to NAS and HDMI to TV.
TV is also 100Mbit connect to NAS.
