Issue: Have tried both installations from GitHub and also now with OpenPlex, my ATV2 connects and finds PMS, loads up TV Shows etc. but i get no thumbnails, fanart, metadata etc. info and when i try to play any file i get the error message 'An error occurred loading this content'....

Have tried and you see to change settings to point to the right PMS ip but still no joy....any ideas, what am i doing wrong here?

Thanx in advance!!
