Because new ATV4s are still $150, and I’ve got a couple 3rd generations laying around, on older non-smart TVs. This is a free solution!

Hi,
Has anyone tried this guide with python27 deprecated?

I'm recreating plex and plexconnect on a new pool. With python27 no longer available, I've tried this guide with python37 and python37-pillow. So far everything worked up until running ./PlexConnect.py where I get the following error:

Code:
root@plexconnect:~/PlexConnect # ./PlexConnect.py
Traceback (most recent call last) :
  File "./PlexConnect.py", line 20, in <module>
    import DNSServer, WebServer
  File "/root/PlexConnect/DNSServer.py", line 116
    print "ID {0:04x} ".format((ord(paket[0])<<8+ord(paket[1]))
SyntaxError: invalid syntax


Any ideas on how to remedy?

Hi @sretalla
Thanks for your feedback.
I found python27 through pkg and tried running Plex via plexconnect without py-pillow and it worked.
Maybe py-pillow is no longer needed!
Cheers
