Any update on this? Amahi-Plex is reporting version 0..9.12.8 and "An update available". Latest Update is 0.9.12.19.1537 which as stated is at least 8 minor updates above the current version, possibly more counting build updates. This is starting to cause compatibility issues between devices as Plex is updating clients and the Amahi-Plex server is not updated.

As always, all work is appreciated as I know you guys are understaffed. Thanks

This also prevents the Android TV Plex app from working as well.

Thanks

hi, we would like it if you can test this update and report as soon as possible. you must not uninstall the amahi app or uninstall+reinstall it. Limit yourself to ONLY this command and then see if the server works well as you normally would (as this update will take place on subsequent periodic updates), hence we need to test as close as possible to not having user interaction at all:

rpm -Uvh http://alpha.amahi.org/tmp/amahi-plex-0.9.12-1.x86_64.rpm

The package is 100MB as it's usually with Plex (!!), so please be patient while it downloads before it installs. If you are in a shaky connection and worry about interruptions, you can wget the url first if you want, then use the rpm command on the local file.

please report ASAP.

Thanks CPG. I tried the update on my system, Amahi 8, Fedora 21. I ran the command exactly as written. Resceiver "error: can't creat transaction lock on /var/lib/rpm/.rpm.lock (permission denied) " duh, needs to run as root. Ok, command as above prefixed with SUDO. The command seems to have completed, but not sure what this means.
Retrieving http://alpha.amahi.org/tmp/amahi-plex-0.9.12-1.x86_64.rpm

The second stage just stayed at 50%.
The update process for me took approx. 4 minutes.
Other than that though everything works really well.

  • The LG Media Link App is working normally.
  • Android App works normally. (Samsung Note and Galaxy S devices)
  • I haven't got any iOS devices to test on that.
  • Windows 8 / 10 App works well. Secure and insecure connections work.

Plex Server now reports "Up to date" with a nice green tick.

I can also confirm that it updated in the same way as austwhite (successfully). I do have an iOS device that I can test, I will update when I have results.

Thanks.

Releasing it. Our repos have been updated with this version. If you updated by hand here, you do not need to do anything. Everyone else will get it automatically on the next periodic update from their repos, which could be a few hours to a few days.

Thanks for the feedback.
