We are not wizards. Check plex logs. Delete them before checking:

Code: Select all

find /mnt/HD_a2/programs/plex/lib/Plex\ Media\ Server/Logs/ -type f -iname "*log*" -exec rm -f {} \;
Then run video on TV. View logs in /mnt/HD_a2/programs/plex/lib/Plex\ Media\ Server/Logs/ directory or filter only possible errors and warnings on screen:

Code: Select all

grep -r "CRITIC*\| ERROR*\|WARN*" --include=*.log* /mnt/HD_a2/programs/plex/lib/Plex\ Media\ Server/Logs/ 
BTW. Does the problem persists, when you try to play movies with internal TV player via DLNA? I mean not plex app.

No, when i play MKV through internal Dlna player, it works, ; and yes, my TV shows(supports) subs when I play that MKVs from memory USB. My TV is Samsung E Series .

Edit : Both native Tv player , and minidlna shows my subtitles.

If yes, then keep in mind that:
App version 2.000 needs PMS version 0.9.11.7.803-87d0708 or newer !
So please make sure that you have latest PMS version installed on NAS.

Just a quick update on my update issues on my NSA310 in case anyone else had problems with some of the recent 'available to all' versions.

0.9.12.19 (Nov 6th 2015) worked every install
0.9.14.6 (Dec 23rd 2015) failed to start
0.9.15.2 (Jan 22nd 2016) failed to start
0.9.15.3 (Feb 3rd 2016) WORKS!

Edit 1: 0.9.15.3 menu navigation seems more responsive (via RARflix on NowTV_v1 and RokuLT_v1) than 0.9.12.19
Edit 2: 0.9.15.3 playback selection seems less responsive (via RARflix on NowTV_v1 and RokuLT_v1) than 0.9.12.19

Thanks as always to everyone who makes this functionality possible on the NSA310!

trid 2 version 0.9.12.19 and 0.9.15.6.
The very latest version didn't start at all for me again so I am keeping with v0.9.12.19

After installing the older version I started it from the command rather than the update script and it worked just fine.

I guess inreto.de was down when you tried. You can retry it. At this moment it's up. And else you can disable Fonz' repo using uwsiteloader.sh

Hi guys,
can somebody help me? I am trying to install PMS on my new Zyxel NAS520. Everything works fine (looks like it) until Installing/starting PMS.

Install -> Latest
1.jpg
Install ->middle option
2.jpg
Install -> Local File
after install plex folder has only 12k
after starting from menu timeout
after 30 min waiting still 12k

Yesterday, via Install -> Latest, it ignored the error and installed Synology PMS instead of NETGEAR (somehow), but I could not play any video, so I decided to reinstall PMS and now I am not able to install it again.

Can somebody tell me, what I am doing wrong?
Thank you.

Uninstall plex first, then execute command:

Code: Select all

su
before running:

Code: Select all

sh /ffp/start/plexmediaserver.sh
for installing plex.

Thank you, it is working, but I can not play any video file from my library.
And why it always download Synology package? When I have Zyxel NAS shouldn't it be Netgear package?
