That’s purely a setting thing. See above.

No need. They asked for a solution to the login screen, and they received it since there's a proper way to accomplish this without breaking the OS. Ticket closed.

I'll add an addendum that the auto-login account should be a local account that isn't bound to a Microsoft account, and I'm assuming that server is headless and doesn't hold anything sensitive should someone break in and steal it, but that's a detail.

Think Facebook might have pulled the plug on the Plexaholics group, it’s not coming up for me at the moment.

e: ah yes, new group has been made as it sounds like either Sky or Virgin Media had them busted.

Anyone have any opinions on PseudoTV vs DizqueTV? Looking to create some fake TV channels with random themed programming to get over the whole "So much content, can't decide what to watch" thing.

dizqueTV is just the fork for plex/emby of PseudoTV, as far as I'm aware. Given the thread it's the only good option.
I can't remember why I decided I wouldn't bother installing it, but I did like the idea of it

e: it's because of the home users restriction; it creates it as a liveTV feed in plex and it's limited as such. Broke how I wanted to use it, anyway.

Sounds like it was talk of indexers and Facebook probably didn’t want to get involved so just pulled it. It’s more of a dick waving competition over who has more storage and people getting into fights about dumb stuff. Had the occasional enjoyable thread. Of course like every group, it was 90% talk about justice league for the last week.

This new home screen they are forcing down my throat is pretty lovely imho. No longer do I see "resume watching Salute Your Shorts", I have to go to TV and then "suggested" for that now. But instead I can see the Ben Shapiro radio show and "Transmorphers 2 with commercials" with convenience like never before!

Oh, so that's what that is! My friend asked me this morning if I was having the same problem and I said I wasn't, but usually if everything is humming along smoothly I don't go looking for updates.

I think you need to make sure all the Plex stuff (Movies and Shows, Wen Shows, and Podcasts) is not pinned and it shouldn't show up in your feed.

I have all of Plex's stupid rear end "Online Media Sources" disabled lol. Everyone ITT should do the same.

Yeah, I have all of their stuff disabled and I actually don't notice a difference between this and what I had before.

I did browse their TV selection, because I haven't done that in a while, and it's all terrible schlock. But maybe I should try their kung-fu and b-movie channel every once in a while.

For some reason I can't download/sync anything from my Plex server to my android tablet; I keep getting the error "there is an error with this item". I have no problems streaming and there is plenty of space on both my tablet and the server. Any ideas?

Which libraries you see can be adjusted in your client. What gets dispplayed in your home screen can all be customized in your account settings. The new new home screen is glorious. Full customization.

I just logged into my server, went into the main admin account, reset all customizations, removed anything related to the free Plex garbage, and all I see are recently added movies and TV shows. No way to see "resume watching" or "on deck" or anything like that. What am I not seeing?

Go to your server, then go to settings, and under “manage”, select libraries.
For each library, put a next to things you want displayed on your plex, Home Screen, that librarie’s Home Screen, and your shared users screens.

Making changes to the web client are independent of your streaming clients. You can have libraries pinned in the web client that aren’t pinned in your firetv, for example. Where are you not seeing resume etc? In the web client or your streaming device? If it’s your client, you have to pin the libraries you want to see, and you have to go to “edit Home Screen” in the client to change what’s visible.

I'm having trouble adding media to my Plex server. When I go to 'scan library files' after adding new movies, the popup says "queuing a scan of the 'Movies' section," which is not the phrasing I recall it using previously - and seems to imply that it's trying to do something else in the process, hence the word 'queuing'. Any ideas? Should I just delete the registry files on the hard drive itself and let the libraries re-compile entirely? What files should I trash and how long will this take? Thanks!

Standard first step is the plex library shuffle
- remove all the media from the folder
- adjust scheduling hours so you're outside of the window
- adjust scheduling hours so you're inside of the window (wait for all processes to finish)
- add media back in
- scan folder

(skip step 2 if you already are)

It should remove the media from the library and butler everything, then take a completely fresh run at adding it.

I would have never figured this out in a million years. Thank you so much.

I used to always see "on deck" on the main home screen on my TV, but it went away with the latest update to Plex. Going into the settings you mentioned brought it back. Thank you so much!!

edit: I spoke a little too soon. I don't see the option for "on deck" or "resume" anywhere. I used to be able to see these on the home screen just fine.

On Deck settings are in Settings/Library, not in settings for the individual libraries.
