  1. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    Hi all, I'm watching my movies by playing 4k remux files on my windows 10 PC and using Plex. My PC is connected to my Denon AVR which is powering my 7.1 speakers. What sounds better: 1) enabling the passthrough settings in Plex and letting my AVR do the decoding or 2) disabling the...

  3. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    I have a home theater setup (5.2.4) at home. I use Power Sound Audio speakers/subs and, for the most part, they sound incredible. Every once in a while I hear a pop or crackle when watching a youtube video or the bass hits a bit too hard and causes vibrations in my light fixtures (I need to...
  4. Xbox Area
    Does Xbox one X support true HD for regular movie playback (not Blu ray)? I was playing some content through Plex and the true HD is converted to PCM since I have it configured to uncompressed 5.1 in Xbox settings. Once I modified to the bitstream, I have 3 options to pick, DTS or Dolby Digital...
  5. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Finally, after years and years, I bought a new TV. 2019 TCL 6 Series. I have a collection of media I'd like to direct play to the TV to enable HDR/Dolby. I've learned that to enable HDR/Dolby I also need the correct audio processing or else my Plex media server will begin transcoding...
  6. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    Since the H9F just hit the streets this month, and is getting some good reviews I thought I would start a official owners thread. This is high on my black Friday shopping list for a gaming TV :D
  7. Home Theater Computers
    Hi all, I’m running the plex media server on an old Windows 10 machine plugged into my AVR in my basement. 4k movies are always buffering. but when I play these same movies on kodi or media player classic, its silky smooth. so I installed the Plex Media player and when I use that, the video is...
  8. Networking, Media Servers & Content Streaming
    Wondering if anyone has found a photo-centric solution for serving media from a networked pc, to screens around the house?  I currently use Plex running on the Windows 10 where all my photos are stored, with Apple TV 4th Gen. running the Plex app attached to various TV's to display the photos. ...
  9. HTPC - Mac Chat
    I have EyeTV running on my Mac Mini with 2 HDHomeRun Duals, and things are working properly. I see that Plex has a product that should do the same things. I also see that I would pay $120 for a "lifetime" sub. Does Plex have more going for it than what I'm used to with EyeTV? Thanks in advance!
  10. Networking, Media Servers & Content Streaming
    Im a heavy user of plex, and i find it increasingly difficult to watch movies on my Vizio M60-C3. I have a NAS setup with a collection of movies varying in size, anywhere from 3gb to 30gb. The NAS is connected via Ethernet with a gigabit connection locally. Initially, I had my tv connected...
  11. Networking, Media Servers & Content Streaming
    After lots or research I decided to use unRAID and PLEX for my first real dedicated media server build. The server will also perform some backup functions. I have been messing around with the idea for a few years. Jon S helped me out a lot in the Ripping BluRays II thread, thank you (I went...
  12. Home Automation
    I know Plex Pass users have access to the Plex Labs feature Webhooks but it looks like the development for using those commands is still in early stages. I was wondering if anyone is using those Webhooks or other http commands to integrate Plex with their home automation system. For example, I...

    For $1400+Tax this weekend I picked up a 70" Vizio E-Series UHD TV and an open box Samsung HW-K850 Atmos 3.2.1 Soundbar for the living room so I'm feeling pretty good about that purchase. :D Elsewhere in the house I have a Windows PC dedicated to running Plex, I can hard-wire gigabit Ethernet...

  20. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I have the TV connected to the receiver via the ARC enabled HDMI. When trying to watch anything on my server with Dolby Digital through the Plex app, I get no audio through the receiver. If I switch to the internal speakers, the audio works fine, so it's not a problem with the file or the...
