    Hey im having abit of a problem with Plex. Iv installed the Plex Media server on my Hp proliant microserver windows 7 (so downloaded the server for windows). Wanted to add media to it. add the folder containing my movies. about 400 or so movies on the one drive to test plex out. It picks them up and downloads the poster cover art. But it only showing out of the 372 files on the drive it show in plex only 63 of them!

    Is anybody using Plex could sure use your help. Why isnt it showing all of the movies? why only Certain ones? Its doing it with Series aswell only Certain ones are shouwing up in the Plex media manager screen. Iv scanned and scanned restart everything. I removed plex removed its directories from registry etc reinstalled it and the exact same thing is happen.

    Any suggestions please people?

    Try a "deep" scan maybe by holding Alt and clicking refresh button?

    Sorry about not replying earlier. I only saw your post now. That specific problem has never happened with my Plex setup but I would have guessed that it had something to do with naming conventions and directory structures. Please tell us how you fixed it. Just in case it happens to someone else. Thanks.

    Don't exactly have an dedicated HTPC but I just plugged in some HDDs into my Apple Airport Extreme and shared them. Anyone on the network can access them. I set up XBMC on my computer so just watching stuff that way.
    I also set up another hackintosh with SABnzbd, Couchpotato and Sickbeard. Installed some programs to automatically copy the new media from the computer to the Airport HDDs and then delete them when they're 24 hours old. Loving it!

    LightbulbMy HTPC solution for the Apple TV!!!! iHomeserver!!

    Hi all

    I am new to the forum but would like to share my HTPC setup.

    Initially I had an xtreamer sidewinder which was not only a media player but a nifty NAS connected to my home network, accessible through wifi by my desktop, laptops and idevices.

    As result of the conveniences that came with this setup (video streaming, backups and internet acces to files) I wanted more and started researching better solutions and this is what I have currently:

    I used an old dell machine and installed Windows Home server 2011 and use it as my media streaming machine, backups (auto) of desktop and laptops. Its a headless machine which i control with a remote desktop app on my ipad, iphone or desktop. But i wanted more, since I had a LOT of movies (currently 2TB) and wanted to have it stream to my apple TV. Now those apple fanboys will know that this is not particularly possible since ATV will only play movies in the itunes library. Yes i have an app (Goodplayer) which will fetch or stream the movie to the app BUT then I found Ihomeserver which means that I have itunes installed on my server and iHomeserver software will manage this instance of itunes to allow my ATV to stream the movies onto my TV!!!! This means that using homesharing the ATV finds the server and instance of itunes under computers (on ATV) and I see all the movies and series in my scanned folders.

    But what about movies not compatible with itunes.... well by just installing handbrake the software scans identified folders and automatically converts them!!! It also manages pop up windows in itunes, puts movies into movies category and series into TV shows categories based on the folders scanned!

    Other features include remote access so that itunes content can stream to idevice via the internet (unetested by me), autotag movies, DLNA media server for non-apple devices (android, smart tv etc)

    Now... my dilemma is what kind of a forum is this if a search of this forum comes up with no hits for this piece of software?
