Plex media server downgrade

Post by jives »

the recommended solution for playback problems on my LG Webos tv is downgrading Plex media server to 1.16.6.1592-b9d49bdb7, is this possible and how should I do that ?
thanks in advance

Hi,

many thanks for your report. Yes that's possible. Basically a way how to manual install Plex is described on the following link

https://www.linuxbabe.com/debian/instal ... -10-buster

Based on this you would need to do the following to downgrade Plex

Code: Select all

systemctl stop plexmediaserver.service
wget https://downloads.plex.tv/plex-media-server-new/1.16.6.1592-b9d49bdb7/debian/plexmediaserver_1.16.6.1592-b9d49bdb7_armhf.deb
dpkg -i plexmediaserver_1.16.6.1592-b9d49bdb7_armhf.deb
systemctl start plexmediaserver.service
To verify installed version, you can do following

Code: Select all

dpkg -l plexmediaserver
Next to this, you would need to deactivate Plex on Debian source list. Otherwise Plex will be updated to newest version as soon as you execute apt upgrade.

Code: Select all

nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/plexmediaserver.list
By default, source list is active. Add a # in front of the line to disable this repository.
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team
