    Default Plex profile help

    I've got Plex running on my laptop to stream movies to my LG BD550 Bluray player. It works really well except that I can never get it show the thumbnails of the movies. I just get a generic picture for each movie. Am I right in thinking that plex is using the generic profile to stream with (I can't see an LG profile in the plex profile folder) and to get the thumbnails to work I will need a custom profile? I've never had a problem streaming anything so I guess the generic profile is a good match I'd just like the thumbnails so my kids can find what they're after easier. I'd appreciate any help pointing me in the right direction.

    Cheers

    The LG is using a DNLA client to display not running a plex client. LG used to have a plex client back in 2013, this is why I took my LG back and bought a Samsung who do have a native client.

    Is it a non starter then? I've had a look at the plex forums and from what I can gather it would need a custom profile for it to work properly. I can't fault the streaming side of it, it's just the thumbnails and metadata.

    Cheers. I'll have a look. I think the app store is different for TVs and Bluray players though.
