In the last few weeks Plex (NexusPlayer) has been finishing random episodes with an error message saying that connection has been lost with the Plex Media Server. But it hasn't, you can click CANCEL and watch it again just fine.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Now the CM Recovery has overwritten my TWRP Recovery, how do I do a backup. Was using ROM Manager, but it reaches CM Recov and stops?

I faced once that problem while flashing CM12 , ended up flashing CWM recovery. I was gotten stuck in twrp boot, reflashed but didn't work. so I flashed cwm. Now everything works like a charm.

Seriously, just reinstalled CM for the second time on my Nexus 5 and it keeps seizing up, so it's unusable, it goes back to normal after a while sometimes, other times I have to hard reset.  This is why you should have stables, not permanent nightlies, how about some bloody QA!

How is the Nexus 5 Nightly, stability wise at the moment?  Is there no Stable available, can't see one in Downloads.
I've been away from CM for some time, but after checking out Stock M Preview 2, which has issues with GPS and BT, I've decided to come back to CM for a bit, see how things play out...

I have my content on my (Paid) Plex Server (User A).  We also have User A and B, which are myself and my Partner's free accounts, so we can manage what we watch separately.  
Can I use Trakt on my free account to keep track of what either my Partner or I watch? (separate trakt accounts)?

With some recent Android Plex App updates I can't see my main account, why?

Well, I tried, I've flashed CM 12.1 on my Nexus 5 two weeks ago and updated at least every two days via the in-built mechanism.  Every single day it experiences a go-slow, rendering the phone un-responsive for upto fifteen minutes before it goes back to normal and it does this multiple times a day.
I know CM is free, but I expect it to be usable, which it is NOT!  I'll be flashing back to Android M Preview 3 at my earliest convenience!

That is rather extreme after every nightly update.

How do you un-install initial apps, like the camera?

I just downloaded an app to remove root apps (from the play store) and clicked it and uninstalled.

Hi, seem to be getting a lot of 'artifact' issues on my playback (Nexus Player), to the point nothing can be identified... It will existing on a specific scene, until the scene changes and it will stop.  How can I diagnose the problem?

I'm running an i7 with 16 Gb RAM on an 6Gb/s SSD.  I did have it on 720p (4Mbps), but it seems to have changed to ORIGINAL at some point in the last two months.  I've put it down to 1080 8Mbps, will see how it responds.  
This isn't all videos, just some, don't know if it's particular containers/codecs that it has problems with, haven't nailed it down yet...

+Plex , can you provide functionality that allows you to select a version where you have duplicate TV Episodes, say one at 720p and one at 1080p etc..

Plex
 
You can have merged media for TV, just like for movies. Generally, most apps and the server will work together to automatically select the most appropriate version to play. Some apps (Plex Web App and Plex Home Theater, for instance) do allow you to set things so you're prompted to choose. But you shouldn't count on that being available in all apps.

30something getting on with life...
Introduction
I'm a 30-something with an avid interest in anything IT.  

I'm particularly into open-source software / companies, those that promote positive ideals and not just ripping the money out of the wallets of people who are addicted to tech/gadgets.  

I prefer Linux over other OS and Android over other Mobile OS.  I do this because they are predominantly open-source and they stimulate people to try and improve.  

I will ALWAYS prefer products/services that have the following Terms & Conditions: [You may do what you want with this product/service, you may try to improve it, copy and pass it round your friends, do what you want]

I welcome people from anywhere in the world, as long as they A) Don't have their head stuck half way up their rectum... B) They speak to me (and post mostly) in English...

Please note that I do not use G+ to specifically make new friends. I use it to share information, news and see what goes on in the world.  If I regularly interact with certain people on certain topics, so be it.  So do not tag me in a message like "Hi +Barry Smith", as it will not get answered.

Had a leaking pipe (from the sink to Washing Machine), had been advised it could be just a washer, but didn't have a clue more than that. Overton Bathroom Centre provided a washer after showing a pic on my phone and explained what probably needed doing was able to disconnect the hose and replace the washer. Leak sorted.

We went here for our first baby scan. The experience was generally good, was seen within 10 minutes of our appointment time and it didn't take long. I'm not however impressed that we could not take our own pics/vids of the scan. I would really like some official justification as to why we are prevented from doing so.
