    Thumbs up Install PLEX Connect on ATV2 Easy Guide

    This is how to install PLEX Connect on ATV 2 in under 5 minuets. I have tried various guides and it has been made so complicated when there is no need.

    In this tutorial I'm using a MBP "Mac"

    Things you will need.

    1:Apple TV with firmware up to 5.3
    2:PLEX Media Server Running on your computer
    3:PLEX Connect Running on your computer (This step is what most people get wrong and they try to install this on their Apple TV)

    Instructions

    1:First install and run PLEX on your computer https://plex.tv/downloads
    2:Install PLEX Connect to do this just copy the folder to your applications folder https://codeload.github.com/iBaa/PlexConnect/zip/master
    3:Next open terminal and copy this code

    openssl req -new -nodes -newkey rsa:2048 -out ~/Desktop/trailers.pem -keyout ~/Desktop/trailers.key -x509 -days 7300 -subj "/C=US/CN=trailers.apple.com"

    4:Then copy this code

    openssl x509 -in ~/Desktop/trailers.pem -outform der -out ~/Desktop/trailers.cer && cat ~/Desktop/trailers.key >> ~/Desktop/trailers.pem

    This will create 3 cert files on your desktop
    now copy these into your PlexConnect-master/assets/certificates folder

    5:Run Plex Connect by typing this into terminal

    sudo "/Applications/PlexConnect-master/PlexConnect.py"

    Make sure you have a static IP on your computer and note this

    These are optional codes you can use in terminal

    stop the running instance of PLEX Connect (CTRL-C)

    I advise on this to make PLEX Connect start on boot up as daemon

    cd "/Applications/PlexConnect-master/support/OSX"
    sudo ./install.bash


    sudo ./uninstall.bash will shut down the daemon and uninstall it.

    Configure the Apple TV 2

    1:Go to settings network and change your DNS to your computer IP
    2:Go to general then send data to apple NO
    3:While on NO press the play button on your Apple TV Remote (This will prompt you to add a new profile)
    4:Change the address to http://your-Plex-Server-IP-address/trailers.cer

    Thats it all done Easy

    Default

    Just another note on this, follow the above steps then do this If you have a dd-wrt router you can make the trailers redirect to your Plex server on your computer.

    1:In your dd-wrt router look for services and click on that.
    2:Enable DNSMasq
    3:In additional options address=/trailers.apple.com/your PC IP
