Under the Minimum Requirements for the Windows version it says, Windows 7 SP 1 and the latest release of Plex Media Server is dated yesterday. Plex Media Server is the one you want for your laptop.xianjiro on May 6 2017, 09:56:54 PM wrote:What I seem to recall is I have to route the DigiTV receiver through the VHS so could replace the DigiTV receiver with Roku and set up the server on the laptop, then I'd just need to add the Roku MAC address to the router and it should work. I've checked that Plex supports Win 7 for the server though not sure what the letters 'dead' mean at the end of the filename - maybe it's just deprecated. Seems pretty clear Plex isn't actively supporting anything before 8.1
Is there anything in this happy family play party mess that I'm forgetting/missing?
Thanks for helping me with understanding this - I have to get away for a while since it's given me a headache.
These guys have released versions of Plex for FreeBSD(!!), so there's no way they'd not support Windows 7, given that it still makes up around half the PCs on the Internet. I'm not sure what the "dead" letters refer to, but the letters d, e, and a are all part of the hexadecimal numbering system and I guess it's possible the md5 checksum yielded that result...???
