Multi media solutions.
They don't enforce any standards on the clients, so that's sort of going to happen. The clients just implement whatever bits they want, but we need certain stuff to be able to interface to them.

couldn't you just do for plex what sageTV does? ie, the "client" drivers are just talking to the server and the server tells CQC what the clients are doing?
works great for sage...
not sure you could even implement that on plex, but if you can, it would seem to solve all your client problems? does plex support plug ins?

of course, I am in the "I have no current need for plex" camp, so no rush on my part...
NOTE: As one wise professional something once stated, I am ignorant & childish, with a mindset comparable to 9/11 troofers and wackjob conspiracy theorists. so don't take anything I say as advice...
It's just that we need a minimum set of functionality in order to have a functional media renderer. If the device doesn't implement it, we can't do a standard renderer driver for it. We could do something more simplistic, but it would not be a V2 type media renderer driver that can be used in all of the magic type functionality that expects one.

Is there some way to find out why these clients are failing? They do work when directly connected to the Plex server.
Check the logs. They will likely be saying that the client doesn't provide sufficient functionality. The Plex server doesn't care what functionality they provide, it's just serving them up media. For us, we have to have the functionality necessary to implement a media renderer, and not all of them implement all of that.
