Plex Media Server works extremely well on the Nvidia Shield TV. I'm a Plex Pass lifetime member and I use Plex Media Server mostly as a Live DVR with OTA Antenna. I do have to reboot the Nvidia Shield TV occasionally when PMS crashes, but its mostly a solid experience. The only minor complaint I have is that I'm not able to access the files on the Nvidia Shield TV using network sharing on my PC even though its configured correctly on the Nvdia Shield TV. I am able to access the network shares using my Wife's iMac.
SMB/Samba share service is unstable and corrupts files when copying. Shield TV forum has several noting the issue since 6/2017 with no fix.
Have used plex for a while great app best one on the market, but it seems since the last 5.2 update I can no longer gain access via the pc to the shield pro internal storage over the network , no mater what I do. looked on all forums etc ,changed various settings as described but still nothing . Big problem with the smb side of things. Hence only the 3 stars Please fix as soon as possible , I carn't be the only one with this issue, seems to be an ongoing problem
Let us import our db and host it on a external memory device. I also want to be able to install 3rd party channels. Unhappy with Plex on the Shield.
Same issues remain from launch day. Transcoding 10bit files doesn't work, anamorphic video aspect ratio gets messed up when transcoding. The lack of access to the data area is a real pain though even if it was just to back up server data and watch status. Considering giving up on this as a media server. If these things were fixed it would be 5 stars
I use this on Nvidia shield android TV. Sharing plex storage to windows PC over network is a nightmare. Only works upon configuration, then after device is rebooted or sleeps sharing is not possible anymore. Issue needs a fix urgently as it is a core component of the application functionality.
