PlexConnect is a brilliant solution to get Plex running on an Apple TV 2 or 3 without jailbreaking the device. Apple released some days ago Apple TV OS 5.3 with the following new services: In addition to HBO GO and WatchESPN, three new content providers are also available today on Apple TV including Sky News, Crunchyroll and Qello offering live news, sports and current TV programming. Beside this, Apple TV OS 5.4 beta (iOS 7) is available for developers, too. Apple TV software 5.4 beta now offers iTunes Radio, which Apple announced at WWDC would be coming to Apple TV in the fall, and a new feature called Conference Room Display.
As the name suggests, this mode is aimed at Apple TVs in the workplace. Users can set the Apple TV’s home screen with a custom image, like a corporate or event logo, and a custom message. Viewers will see the custom image and message and also an overlay telling them how to connect their devices to the Apple TV.
So we are all keen on knowing if PlexConnect is still running on Apple TV software 5.3 and 5.4 beta! I tested both version 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 5.3 and 5.4 beta (1). The same results are reported in the plex community.
Stay tuned! 😉
