Plex for Android and Google TV version 22.214.171.124 – includes connection, remote control and myPlex fixes.
This release brings you a critical fix for the myPlex Queue and Shares on the Google TV. Rest assured, we’ve been properly beaten for that. In addition to that critical fix, we’ve pulled in fixes for remote control, some long standing connection issues, and some big hitters that you’ve submitted to us from the field.
Fixes related to Plex for Android
The first bunch are related to connections to Plex Media Servers. The first two issues in particular were causing some seriously frustrating problems where some people could only get to their media servers when AWAY from home:
FIX an issue where unauthorized remote connections were incorrectly categorized as reachable.
FIX an issue where local connections aren’t chosen over remote connections when detected and reachable.
FIX an issue where sometimes servers would be listed with name of section rather than server.
And some fixes for the newly introduced remote control feature:
FIX remote controlled Androids now properly resume video in progress.
FIX when video started from remote control ends – return back to original view.
FIX when navigating to remote control Loading dialog never dissappears.
FIX where network logging failed to work on some devices / in some cases.
FIX about a dozen assorted field reported crash conditions.
Extras for Google TV
Google TV users pick up all the fixes above and:
FIX myPlex Queue and Shares now load properly again.
FIX always refresh the last selected flyout when returning to Home – so that you can finally see updates to onDeck and channels and so forth without having to reload the page.
Fair Warning – Redux
There are now 13 customers running Plex on Donut which means 4 of you upgraded! Good job! To the remaining 13 people there is good news – you should still be able to run this release on Donut (1.6) but SERIOUSLY the next version of Plex for Android will (almost) certainly not support it. 13 is an unlucky number – please upgrade. Thanks!
As always we’d like to extend a special thank you to the Plex for Android Alpha Test Team. They do more than you’ll ever know to make every release better!
