#1

Hello,

will Rasplex run on the Raspberry Pi 3B+?

Thanks.


#2

I dont have one so I cant tell
but im pretty sure we need a kernel update for the new features like dual band wifi and the gigabit ethernet to work

at least thats whats happening with raspbian and retropie


#3

No, Rasplex 1.8 won’t run on a Raspberry Pi 3 B+. It sits at the rainbow square.


#4

You can try https://libreelec.tv/ with the Plex4Kodi Add-On


#5

I don’t know about RasPlex, but I just got PlexPi working on my new 3B +

You able to get live tv to work? and able to record? I’m looking at something more for a media player. Since Roku still wont allow recording

Eventually. There is some OS R&D work going on to enable 1.8 to run on the new rPi3 B+ model.


#8

Eager for RasPlex on the Pi3B+


#9

Just got a Pi3B+ - can’t use it - lame.

Does it work with the “Plex Media Player for Embedded Devices” img?

No, does not boot with the embedded image yet either.

@wdelarme
I don’t have a tuner, so I have not yet tried Live TV. But if I get one, I will let you know.


#13

RasPlex = Plex Media Player
PlexPi = Plex Media Server

I think.


#14

as noted here https://github.com/RasPlex/RasPlex/issues/606
you can use the following build https://github.com/RasPlex/RasPlex/releases/download/PRE-1.8.0b%2B/RasPlex-1.8.0.0-573b6d73-RPi2.arm.img.gz

as long as you turn off auto updates it should be stable enough until a proper build is done for the Raspberry Pi 3B+


#15

Just make sure you have a proper powersupply.


#16

The current build for the 3B+ works like a charm.
Not a single problem encountered so far, but I’ll keep testing. It’s also incredibly quick - from initial power up to streaming content is well under the 1 minute mark. Extremely impressed !


#17

So how’s the 3B+ going?
Other than being a tiny bit faster then the RPI2,3 does it do anything better?

Thanks


#18

i have both the Pi 3B and 3B+… i must say im not seeing any performance boost… and if its there, i havent noticed it… i will say if you have a Pi 3B then a upgrade is not worth it.

Yeah i’m waiting for Kwiboo to get the Rock64 up and running. The PI’s are so far behind in hardware tech. I do want h.265, HDR and 10bit.
