Telstra TV2 - installing Plex?

Answered

Has anyone had any success installing Plex app on the new Telstra TV2? I followed the developer work around solution to instal it on the old Telstra TV unit but we have since upgraded. Does the same method perhaps work?

Re: Telstra TV2 - installing Plex?

I noticed that the manifest file in version 3.1.9 was called 'manifest.template'. I tried renaming it to just 'manifest' but that didn't change anything. Ended up going back a release of Plex to 3.1.8 available from https://github.com/plexinc/roku-client-public/releases/tag/v3.1.8 this installed file using the web browser GUI. It installed and when I went into the lounge Plex app was open and running on the TV.

So to answer my own question, yes you can on the TV2 using the original instructions.

I just tried the instructions at https://crowdsupport.telstra.com.au/t5/Telstra-TV/HowTo-Plex-for-TelstraTV/td-p/519486 . The TV2 was able to enter into Developer Mode. When I try to instal the latest Plex app downloaded as a zip file from https://github.com/plexinc/roku-client-public it spits out the following error messages:

"Application Received: 1000109 bytes stored.
Install Failure: No manifest. Invalid package."
