Problems updating peerguardian 2
If you have something on your computer/network blocking things, you can try whitelisting the following: The metadata–and particularly artwork–stored on your Plex Media Server makes use of symbolic links/hard links for referencing the same item from multiple locations.Some filesystems such as Microsoft’s Resilient File System (Re FS) or “drive pooling” implementations don’t correctly handle things in such a way that the links used for the metadata work correctly.
In the past, we’ve specifically seen some of the following cause issues for users: There are undoubtedly other applications that could cause issues, too.
Try disabling your firewall, proxy, or other software and see if that makes a difference.
It’s quite rare, but sometimes users may see that Plex Media Server retrieves all the normal textual metadata (description, director, cast, rating, etc.) for a library item, but no images are retrieved.
When you create or edit a media library, you can set the metadata agent to use under the Advanced tab of the library window.
This is intended to block inbound connections from internet addresses as specified by IP address, though urls probably get converted to IP addresses via DNS lookup so it can block those as well (unless you have the address in your host file in which case you would likely defeat the purpose of the program)@carbonize: I think tom means you don't know that the programs works because it is doing its job silently, and you will know if it doesn't work because then you're flooded with all nasty stuff it otherwise blocks :-)Just so you know: V1.1 r518 is the next STABLE release; so, the note above about beta version is not accurate.
Website says: »Here it is, Peer Block 1.1, released November 22, 2010! It includes many bugfixes and a few new features over our last Peer Block 1.0 Stable Release, ...«@Wolfghost: I wasn't referring to you, Wolfghost.
You could also manually add your own images in the Plex Web App if you wanted.
If the images are present on the metadata resource site, then the most common reason you’d see this is if something on either your computer or network is blocking the connection to retrieve the images.
That's because it's actually an updated version of PG, however, unlike PG, I found it updates smoothly and doesn't hang.
I like the fact it comes in a portable version too.
Peer Block is a firewall application that uses Internet Protocol (IP) blacklists to prevent certain IP addresses from connecting to your computer.
