Configuring PMS for Playz App on LG TV

Once I had purchased the Playz App through my LG TV, I had to configure Plex to work without authentication.

The PMS Version and settings I changed are listed below, the Plex server must be on the same network/subnet/logical network segment.
  • Plex Version
  • Settings / Server / Connect (Show Advanced)
  • Settings / Users / My Home 
    • Delete all users
    • Friends are ok

I then tested this on my laptop with Plex Home Theater to make sure it could connect without being logged in.
