    Can you do a video on where get movies to add to your plex

  3. Josh Fischer says:

    It looks like you have a ton of movies and TV shows. Did all of them fit on your 256 GB hard drive?

  4. Vic da G says:

    This video was great until I got stuck! My shield was unable to see one of my Synology Nas devices to mount it.. And it was th one with all the videos. i finally compared settings of both NAS devices. I disabled network firewall. And like two other things which I cant remember, and now the Shield sees both easily. then I let your video here lead me the rest of the way. Excellent video my friend!

  5. Cass Cassidy says:

    If I already have a 4TB exFat-formatted hard drive with all my media (primarily movies) on it, would I have to reformat another drive via the Nvidia Shield and move them over? Or can I just connect and be good to go without having to reformat?

  6. Techytech says:

    is it possible for the shield Plex server to be connected to a windows pc, so that it obtains the movies from the PC? I don't want to format the pc but just have the relevant media folders available to the shield Plex. thanks

  9. Tom P says:

    I now have Plex running on an old gaming PC, connected to the TV using a RaspberryPI. We want to get an Nvidia Shield to do streaming, and I can't find anything about how to use just the Plex client app. Your video here was great and very helpful if I want to use the Plex server, but have you done one for setting up the client to connect to a Plex PC?

  10. TheTRUST8888 says:

And is plex media player can stream 4k movies with Dolby atmos? I have plex media server on my windows10 PC. Can you please clear this. Thank you in advance

  22. Roger Mash says:

    I've given up with using Shield as a Plex server.Great with all my bluray rips.I can't fault that but HDhome run with Plex dvr just isn't reliable.Too many failed recordings with dvr.Thinking now about trying Vbox.Amazon's recast isn't available in the UK.

  23. Nancy Femmer says:

  28. Kattz says:

    Hi. I need to do some work on my setup later. This is a bit off topic but I posted on the Plex forum months ago and I still don't have an answer.

    I have a Hauppauge USB tuner attached to my Shield. When I scan for channels I'm not getting anywhere near the right number of channels. My database is corrupt and I can't seem to delete it from Plex.

    Does anyone know where this database is stored? I even did a factory reset and it still didn't delete. I'm going to have to do it manually but I can't find it.

    Does anyone know where to find it in the filesystem?
