Starting the plexconnect.py file and I get this output:

If I install it as a service, and launch it that way - a log file gets created and looks normal (opens ports 80 and 443, starts DNS, etc.) but my ATV3 will not connect to it - just spins and spins...


#2

Please use the latest PlexConnect version.

If the ATV "perpetually spins" one possible cause is that the DNS that you have put in its settings is not the same as the machine where PlexConnect is installed, or that machine has a firewall that is blocking access.
