I’ve already posted about the major update to Apple TV Software 6.0 beta. Beside the new features, I was keen on knowing if PlexConnect will still run on Apple TV software 6.0 beta. PlexConnect, a brilliant solution to get Plex running on an Apple TV 2 or 3 without jailbreaking the device, works on Version 5.3 and 5.4 beta. I tested both the Mac OS X and the Windows version for another time on my Acer Aspire 1810T running on Windows 8 Pro and my MacBook Pro running on OS X 10.8.4 with my Apple TV 3: PlexConnect still works perfectly on Apple TV software 6.0 beta (5.4 beta seed 3).
I conducted the test with the latest PlexConncet Version 0.9.7.28 for OS X 10.8.4 and it worked, too:
Here are the details of the PlexConnect update:
- Fixes crashes on Synology and other NAS platforms.
- Simplifies the movie agent default combination rules.
- (Scanner) Pass down section root, helps the new .plexignore feature.
- (API) Make sure stack=1 works for photo section’s recently added endpoint.
- (OS X) Build is signed.
