Plex OpenHab2 - Help a Newbie, Not Showing When Searching For Things?

Hi Folks! :wink:

Complete and utter newbie to OpenHab and getting my head around how this system works.

I have setup my OpenHab Instance on Ubuntu 16 and so far, all my devices (Sonos, Chromecast, Hue) seem to be identified and running just fine. However there are two things I can’t, for the life of me, figure out;

  • Plex Media Server
  • Nest - Thermostat, Smoke Detectors, Cameras

The one thing I have noticed, under Habmin is that these “Bindings” are written for OpenHab1 and I am not sure at this stage if this is the root of my issue or not. It may just be a coincidence that both these modules that arent_ working are both written for OpenHab1. However, I did install it as per the wiki with Legacy support so assumed this would cover older bindings.

Upon installing the Plex Binding I configured it within the PaperUI and went to Things -> Search for things, but nothing shows up, ever, even after a service restart. So, I returned to the wiki page and followed this guide, I noticed that my plex config didn’t exist so created it along with the items configuration, all as per the guide.

Once again, after a search for “things” nothing appears, and I tried a service reboot which has also not helped me at all. At this point I am racking my brains, and no doubt it is something silly :blush:

I hope someone can help me out? Would be great to get to grips with this system!

I don’t think anything will show up for plex. Assuming you added the config with the right clientids then you just have to create the items in an items file.
