Thanks for the quick reply! Actually, the Wiki was the first place I looked. It wasn't clear to me if TV show/Movie progress is synched even when using the normal Kodi player (Playback of TV show via Main Menu\TV shows) or not.

I already asked if what I want can be done via the trakt plugin for Kod; and, just found out that it can't.

Does this addon automatically synch (push and pull) TV show progress (minutes remaining for a TV show to end) with Plex? I've tried doing this with the trakt.tv plugin; but, all it does is just toggle the Watched status.

All I want to do is just continue watching a TV show where I left it off; whether it's in Plex or Kodi.

Here's the official wiki page ...

PleXBMC (wiki)

In my own words ...

PleXBMC is a Plex client that runs as a video add-on in KODI and works like any other Plex client (running on Android, Roku, Web browser, etc).

It plays media from your Plex server and will keep track of your progress on the Plex server (so you can continue watching on any other Plex client connected to the same server).

Optionally, you can install the trakt plugin on your Plex and/or KODI server to report (track) what you watch on the trakt database (independently).

Personally, I do not use the trakt plugin.

More on PleXBMC here ...


I hope this helps.

Hi guys. I am having an issue with Plexbmc (actually have Beta 4 but its the same with all version 3 that I've tried). When I go to play Live Tv / Channels it just stops after half a second - although all films / tv shows are running fine. Im running Helix 14.2 via Openelec. They channels play perfectly on my iPhone and Smart TV - but for some reason not on my Kodi Box. Ive tried tweaking playback but no joy. Any ideas please ? Thank you

Does the "Toggle Repeat" button work in PleXBMC? I've tried to configure it via the Keymap Editor but it doesn't work toggling the button during playback while playing Plex videos.

I guess this is the best place to post this.

It's 2015.... how do I change the Barkley background for the "TV Shows" menus?

Can anyone help me with creating a menu shortcut to the TV library?

I followed the post here, which hippojay provided a shortcut to "all movies"
Creating a menu shortcut with the above, (with my own IP and section number), works like a charm and takes me directly to "all movies", but for the life of me I cannot get a shortcut to TV shows to work.

I created this shortcut which takes me to "all tv shows"
This gives me a list of all shows and I can click on titles and see the individual seasons, but clicking on a season folder just returns an empty list.
So I get something like this...

Battlestar Galactica > Season 1 > ...

Any ideas?
