I'm having trouble getting the now playing to work with my plex TV shows. Works fine for movies but nothing when I play any show? Anyone have any ideas?

Plex Plugin Setup

Is anyone else having trouble using the Plex Plugin?

I have entered my IP address and port number and in the Plex server network settings have authorized the IP address of the computer running MoviePoster to connect without authentication.

If I try to use my Plex credentials, I receive a "Connection Failed! Please verify your settings." error message. If I do not try to use my Plex credentials, I receive an error message saying "Connection Failed! Not Connected : [IP ADDRES] Nothing is playing or 'tvOS (Master Bedroom)' was not found on your Plex Media Server. Please verify your settings." The device name that I am using is coming directly out of the Plex server logs that, on connection, state "Device is tvOS (Master Bedroom)."

Where am I going wrong??

I have several plex shares that I leverage from time to time. Is there a way to show the now playing if i am playing from one of the plex shares?

I am trying to connect the Plex plugin, but having connection problem

what is the deviceIDtowatch? I input the IP address and port 32400 and in the device id I write the name of the server "mediaHub", it says connection failed /not Authorized 192.168.1.100:32400 nothing is playing or mediahub was not found on your Plex media server

how can I fix that please?

I have the tv connected to intel compute stick which is connected to the internet, and the movieposter app doesn't have any other plugin activated

Excuse me for being a complete nube on this subject but I want to mount a virtual movie poster display on my HT wall and don't have the time today to read 3000 plus posts on the subject. What hardware / software do I need to make this happen?

My list so far is;

1) 42" 4K TV
2) Movie Poster App

That's about as far as I've gotten. Is it as simple as hang the TV on wall, load up a stick and shove stick into TV?

Dennis

Update:

So I found a pretty informative link on YouTube on this very subject. Looks like I can buy a Windows 10 Stick - >S40 Mini PC Stick Intel Celeron N4000 and a keyboard and do the proof of concept using my computer monitor than grab a TV and get busy.

Sony VPL-VW285ES Projector / Denon AVR-X6500H Receiver / Aircom T10 Cooling Fan
Sony BDP-S790 3D/Blu-Ray / Sony UBP-X700 4K UHD
Pioneer DVL-909 Laserdisc / Lexicon LDD-1 Demodulator
Samsung DVD-VR375 DVD/VHS

Confused more than ever;

Grate Dane Cinema Facebook page says I need;
1) MS .net 4.5.2 or above for proper operation.
2) MS Visual C++ runtime for proper operation
3) 7-zip software
4) Download the MoviePoster.exe file

Will all that work on the Windows 10 computer stick I see other people using for the Movie Poster App? Reason I ask is the Movie Poster website says Microsoft Windows Vista, Windows7, or Windows 8.1 or is the website just out of date.

Check out the movienow app. Works on raspberry pi- basically plug and play and is actively supported
