Plex icon with Apple TV logoPlexPlexConnect and OpenPlex are running on Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan beta 2. On June 23, 2015, Apple released Mac OS X 10.11 ElCapitan  (build number 15A204h, “pre-release”). I positively tested it with an Apple TV 3 running on Apple TV 7.2 software. Find more about Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan on Apple’s Website. However, I had to re-install OpenPlex. In the installation note of beta 2 is stated that “After upgrading to OS X El Capitan Developer Beta, applications that write to protected/system locations may no longer function correctly.“. This is most probably the reason for the need of re-installation. There seem to be no big changes to beta 1.

Plex icon with Apple TV logoPlexPlexConnect and OpenPlex are running on Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan beta 1. However, the OpenPlex installer is NOT working anymore due to a lot of new security features in OS X as Wahlman.j. pointed out in the PlexConnect forum. Further more, you can NOT install PlexConnect and OpenPlex because the beta 1 blocks the files from being copied / modded (chmod 777, chown root:wheel) and symbolically linked (ln -s) to system locations like python, /usr/bin etc…. The installation of Python doesn’t work anymore. You even cannot update Python systemwide anymore on a virgin 10.11 El Capitan beta 1. Hopefully, it is just a beta bug.

Apple is describing the activation on wrist raise with “From the moment you wake the display with a simple raise of the wrist, you’ll be comfortable using Apple Watch”. That’s not entirely true: The activation on wrist raise is solely working the horizontal turn. However, it completely fails in any other direction.
