Plex on Apple TV keeps disconnecting

apple-tv

#1

Equipment:
Server - Mac Mini 2011 running macOS 10.13.4, hardwired ethernet to router
Player - Apple TV 4K

Issue: While playing a movie it will constantly stop playing every few mins. When I push back it says it fails to connect to server. The curious part is that if I swipe to close Plex player completely then restart it, it will connect just fine to the server.

Excerpt from the latest Plex Media Server log:

Also note I have a second ATV (not 4k) in another room running Plex that does not seem to have this problem.


#3

Completely restarted my ATV seems to have fixed the problem.


#4

Disregard previous post, problem has come back now.

Anyone?

Both of Atv4Ks do the same thing. If I put it to sleep, it will not reconnect to plex. It looks like only cached content on the plex app is displayed. Anything that I select to play will only get the spinning icon. Nothing ever plays. When I restart the ATV, it works fine.

It worked fine for the longest time. It seems to have started after an update. Probably 2 months I guess. My first ATV4K was purchased day of release, The 2nd about a month ago. Both are wireless.
