I have been using Plex for over a year now, mostly without much issue other than some naming convention issues from time to time… with my iMac, then Mac Pro serving as the server, and XBox One S as the player.
In the past few weeks, I had several days where Plex simply wont work on the XBox. The first issue it was giving me was not being able to see the server, despite having made absolutely no changes to anything whatsoever - it literally was a case of my wife using it, going out to get the kids, coming home, and then having the issue.
Now, Plex can play files that are on the dashboard thingy, but if you just go into a folder, then choose a movie / tv show, it says “nothing to see here”.
I’ve rebooted the XBox and the Plex server app…
I checked, and the XBox app has no updates pending.
In both of the above cases, you can sit and watch everything perfectly on the MacPro (server window).
Using google, I see that I’m not alone with both of these issues (though not specifically in the same time frame).
No one seems to have an actual answer to solve the issue - some people offer suggestions, but no one seems to know 100% what’s going on or how to remedy…
Any magical insights here?
cheers and thanks.
