STREAM TRUE HDMI FROM QNAP TO PLEX ON APPLE TV

Post by guatelize » Wed Feb 06, 2019 9:48 pm

Hi
I have a QNAP with HDMi, where all my movies are stored. The QNAP is connected to the TV and controlled with PLEX on my Apple TV.
My question is how do I configure Plex, on Apple TV, to stream my movies true HDMI from my QNAP to my TV ?
Thanks
Oliver

unclear where the hdmi of the qnap comes into play, if you use an apple tv

qnap= plex server
appletv=plex player

also what is true vs false hdmi ?

I know this is old, but from what I've read, you need to install both Plex server and client. To play via HDMI, it needs to output only video and audio directly from the qnap, so it's acting as a client player in that capacity. It just happens to also house the content as a server...
