I downloaded Plex yesterday. The goal is to listen to music stored on a newly acquired iMac via a years ago acquired LG BD590 in my home theater a room away from the wireless router. The router also was acquired some years ago. Someday, maybe, I'll view movies via Plex too ... but one thing at a time!
Pulling out what little hair is left on my head these last twenty-four hours, I'm basically up and running. One big lesson: do *not* let the Mac go into sleep mode while accessing music. Took awhile to figure that out.
I like Plex. That stated, do I ever have questions. Like what's the difference between a "library" and a "channel," and why I can view album cover art in a library on the computer but not when viewing the library on the LG ... and a bunch of other stuff. Before I drive more knowledgable folks nuts with seriously newbie questions, can anyone point me to a thread on this forum, or a website elsewhere, or a whatever that amounts to "Plex For Dummies?" Actually, with a whole lot of dedication and hard work, I might achieve dummy status. Right now, I'm sub-dummy. I am a little surprised that Plex's "Media Manager" interface doesn't seem to have basic help available (or if it does, I can't find it). Also, the Plex user forums, or at least those I've explored thus far, are way way way over my head in terms of technical savviness.
