Plex LogoOn March 10, 2014, Apple released the Apple TV 6.1 (6698.99.16) software update. PlexConnect is still running on Apple TV 6.1 (2nd and 3rd generation). I tested it right now and I can confirm it for my Acer Aspire 1810T running on Windows 8.1 Pro and my MacBook Pro 13” (Mid 2012) running on Mavericks. There was no need to change anything in the set up of  PlexConnect. Apple TV 6.1 delivers some security improvements and a new feature to arrange main menu items, especially unwanted channels.

Apple TV 6.1 update comes alongside the new iOS 7.1 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. That update added Apple CarPlay support, various bug fixes, and improved Touch ID responsiveness with the iPhone 5s.
