Added the plex app to my iPad works great
Added the plex app as zip to appletv gen1 openelec also work great.
Sony smart tv finds plex in video dlna search but had a issue but does play channels
Further mods needed to get dlna to work on this Linus plex, as a previous install on my windows server worked with dlna perfect.

Great is plex as it adds movie info and DVD covers art.

Can play over Internet with username and password.
