I've just downloaded and installed Plex Media Server and the Windows 8 client onto the same PC.
Ran through the server setup without problems but the Windows 8 client (purchased from the Windows 8 store) can't find the server.
After spending a couple of hours playing, I've found that if I install the server on another machine the client will see it, or if I install the ordinary windows client (as opposed to the Windows 8 client) that will find the server. To summarise:
Windows 8 Client & Plex Server on same machine - Server not found
Windows Ordinary Client and Server on same machine - Server found
Windows 8 Client and Server on different machines - Server found
Can anyone give me some pointers? Or, failing that, how do I get a refund for the Windows 8 client?
