Plex for Kodi not listed as Streamingtarget

Hey Guys,

i just set up my Plex for Kodi installations. So far it is working fine. I am able to connect to my Plex-Server and it is playing Media. (Kodi on XBian on a RaspberryPi 3). The Pi is connected to my living room TV, so i would like to be able to select the LivingRoom TV as a Streamingtarget. But no Plex-App (not iOS, not Android, not Windows) lists the Kodi-Device as a Streamingtarget...

What am I doing wrong? Any suggestions?

Thanks for your replays

Regards
Thorsten

Plex companion is 100% the most important upcoming feature for me. We have chromecasts on every TV in the house, except one (which doesn’t have hdmi). I’m using a Pi3 with kodi for that TV, and we have to use the Kodi remote control app to control plex on that TV only. Does anyone know if this feature is a priority or how far along development for this feature is?

Nope, nobody knows.
