Oi Ve what a pain, The original issue has to do with 1) You either don’t have the Profile installed or 2) Your DNS is not pointing to the IP address of the Plex Server in which you have Plexconnect running. It’s not that dire of an issue really. One thing I have wondered, is the Certificate that I created on one PC going to work with a different PC? I have a Windows 7 system that I messed up yesterday, so I moved the server into a Windows 10 system and it’s working, although not as good as when it was on Windows 7. Actually, I’m running the script on my Windows 7 Laptop, and not on my Windows 10 machine at all. So it appears that I don’t have to recreate my Certificate any time soon.
Looks like these issues have been tossed back and forth by experts, so I can’t really add anything but simply “make sure your DNS is pointing to the IP of your Server”. To do this, I always set AUTO for my ATV3 network settings, then I hit “Manual” for the DNS entry and enter my Main PC’s IP. Which is usually 10.0.1.6 on my Airport.
I’ve got another Plex server installed into my Laptop which I like to use, it’s a faster Intel chip and plays the MKV files better. I usualy run them both together, I’ve been able to access my servers when out of town which is a plus.
But my Issue today was that my Script crashed and after I rebooted the server, I had NO servers showing up in PlexConnect on the ATV3. I read through here, and I tried restarting the script a dozen times, no soap. Finally, I just logged out of my Plex User on the ATV3 and logged back in, then Blammo, my two servers showed up and I can finish binge watching what I was bingewatching.
I’m so glad that people have kept PC alive, it’s a feeling of accomplishment when I follow the instructions and I can play my Plex on my ATV. I’m glad that there are people in here that post and I can usually find a solution to some bug. Sooner or Later I’ll get an ATV4 and I won’t have to use PC, but until then, this is all I got.
I had about 600+ moovies and maybe 40 full TV shows loaded up in my main server, but I was dicking with trying to delete a nag-program that is part of NOD32, turns out if you delete the EXE file, it prevents your system from booting. So now I’m stuck on Windows 10 with it’s even more Meganagscreens until I can rebuild my server into a new Dell Optiplex i5 I just got. For now, I just copied the main storage and I;'ve got maybe 200 movies and 9 TV shows, it’s always a pain when I have to rebuild my Server, cos sometimes my Media is not detected, or it will detect as something else and I have to go and find it.
