I installed Plex thinking it would "just work" like XBMC because thats where it began.Not so much for me.I installed both the sever and the media center.I never was able to access the server in anyway.The media center I was able to go into and access the menu with preferences,etc but was never able to find my movies,just some blah basic pod cast type channels from the internet. I uninstalled and reinstalled just the server,still not able to access it,no icons and when I click on it in the list of all programs it does nothing. I go back to the Plex web site again and again,for the 3rd time,search for a step by step tutorial to follow for installing.No luck.I give up and uninstall again.Maybe it works better with Mac.Maybe the Linux folks are a lot smarter than me,I have had issues with not doing well with Linux.But I use XBMC daily and love it,I have used NOKNOK and Playon and can build a pc from the ground up and repair laptops and other electronics to a degree.Why can't I find a simple step by step that actually tells how to install and use on a Windows 7 machine? Roku of course was simple,follow the steps on the screen,add the channel,enter the code,there it is on Roku,but of course there is nothing for it to find when my pc can't find it.
I was wondering if maybe Plex does not play well with XBMC installed?If not,I will keep my XBMC and continue to use Playon to send my movies to the Roku,I am not willing to give up XBMC.
