I am beyond ready to just forget everything because it's been driving me nuts for days.
So I have PMS installed on my Linux Mint Laptop, media is on an external drive. Its all setup, seems to have found all the items when searching and no issues with that.
I also have PIA set up on my laptop, set the port forwarding, set up the local correctly. I followed the various directions and read the thousands upon thousands of posts, from here, reddit and even blogs about setting up port forwarding on my router, and assigning it its own iP Address and the port. I've done it all.
When I connect with my Roku devices I am able to only get Relay, but the playback quality under the settings allows me to have a pretty decent viewing experience over wifi.
BUT my apple tv, which is hardwired to the network, the same network that my PMS server laptop is connected to, works slow, gets a relay, but only allows me to stream at .7mbps, 320p for home streaming and internet streaming. IF I attempt to change these things, it just reverts back to this, which leads to a choppy horrible blurry experience for something that's directly connected. I've tried everything.
I did notice under the settings while looking at the AppleTv Plex, that under debugging > Enable Log Download it showed the local IP address but a port of 32500/logging NOT the 32400 in which my PIA and Laptop are set for.
Is this the issue???
