    Default PLex, plugins and appleTV

    So I finally got my atv running plex and tbh i prefer it to xbmc, no muss no fuss finding the videos I had listed in the server, unlike xbmc which found SFA out of the box.

    Playing with plex today, to my delight I see there are over 200 plugins for it to bring in media from the net. Obviously we aren't going to get stuff like The History Channel to work (unless we fuss with proxies or DNS etc) but when I saw ABC iView I was really quite excited (easily excited I am). Installed the plugin (along with a few others) and rushed out to the TV to see what might be waiting for me. In a word... nothing.

    Some of the plugins I installed are there and serving content... but... not iView.

    So my question is: has anyone installed this and got it working on the appleTV? I have it working in the server, but there seems no point to that, I don't need the plex server to access iView. I *would* like to access it on the AppleTV. The plugin appears to be installed, but no joy accessing iView content.

    (also would have liked national gegoraphic and NASA too but they didnt show up either)

    Default

    Also, theres a new plugin on the way, apparently, for eyeTV. Not sure if I would bother, eyeconnect works well enough these days, but still, people seem to be working on new stuff all the time, for Plex. I really am very impressed with it.
