The app says free, but what they meant was its free to download and then pay them. It should be advertised as a paid product.

I have installed this application several times and it ends up disappearing. When I go back to the store it shows that I own it but that it is not installed. No matter how many times it is installed it never shows

Regardless of your pc's power, this app will always have your server TRANSCODE audio. This is a useless application for a HTPC wired up to a 1080p display with DTS audio. You will NOT get the full hometheater effect here.

Sure. It looks pretty. Doesn't work, but looks nice. But that's what can be said about most of the metro stuff. Bunch of files won't render. They play fine in VLC. Play fine in iTunes. Play fine on the Roku, but not Plex. Don't regret buying Plex, but it's not living up to its potential.

The app was working great up until the latest update. It has now lost the Manage Sync button, which apparently has been replaced with a Status button. Problem is, that button flat out does nothing, so at the current time there is no way to adjust Sync settings from the device, it all has to be done from elsewhere. You also can't check your Sync status from the device because of this. Hopefully an update comes out soon that will fix this, but it has already been broken for 10 days with no word from the devs.
