Last time I checked ( a year ago), the Raspberry Pi would not pass or decode HD audio.

According to the website mentioned above, the Chromebox mod will pass HD audio.

Hi all,

I thought d PHT (running on a PC) would allow for airplay of local content (e.g., videos/photos shot on my iPhone) to Plex, but it doesn't. I installed iTunes and restarted so Bonjour should be installed. Isn't Airplay (in this sense, and not streaming from the Plex iOS app to an apple TV, etc) supposed to work?

thanks....confused!

PHT is Plex Home Theater which is just a Plex Playing / Viewing app, where is the Plex Server? You need to have a Plex Server Running somewhere that is pointing to all of you media (movies, music and photos) and once it is set up properly you will be able to view all of them on your devices inside and outside of your house (if you choose).

Hi,

Thanks for the response. I've had Plex up and running like a charm for years. I've experimented with PMS on NAS and dedicated computers. Right now, I have PHT and PMS on the same Windows 7 machine. My problem isn't with local media on my server..that works just perfectly...rather, my problem is that it can't act as an Airplay receiver? For displaying Airplay content, I wouldn't think PMS is involved (but I could be wrong).

So, my basic question is:
Can you take a photo on your phone and display it (the photo on your phone) on a TV running Plex via Airplay (without having to move it to your photos folder in PMS)?...ie, do i need to buy an apple TV to do this one act?

Thanks!

Ok I missed that part of the equation - From what I see online this should work but there are a lot of posts on the Plex forum saying that it isn't working / hasn't been working since a version update sometime in December.

I don't use Airplay at all so maybe someone else that has more knowledge can assist.
