Metadata issues with Plex co-existance

I recently purchased a Vizio Smart TV that had a Plex app installed.  I've been a long time MB / Emby user, but decided to install Plex on the same computer I use for my Emby Server and primary Emby for WMC client.  (If there were an Emby app for the Vizio smart TV, I'd gladly uninstall Plex, but as far as I can tell there isn't one.)

 

Since installing Plex, when I open Emby for WMC instead of seeing pictures for my media I initially see the default folder image for each.  When I scroll through my library, the default folder images are eventually replaced with the cover art.  I thought maybe this would just happen the first time I used Emby for WMC after installing Plex, but it seems to happen every time now.

 

This computer is a Windows 7 Professional workstation. It is a dedicated Media Center PC and doesn't really have much running on it besides Emby and now Plex.

 

The only two plugins I have installed are CoverArt 4.0.9.2 and ServerWMC 1.0.0.64.  The server version is 3.0.5781.3

 

I'm not sure if I'm providing enough information, but I don't want to ramble.  Please let me know if there is anything additional I should provide.

 

Thanks!

If i remember correctly, there is a plex storage format/compatibility feature that you have to check with respect to the metadata.....make sure you check that.

Thanks for the reply!  Do you mean to say that's a setting I need to change within Plex or within Emby?  I've looked through the settings of both and don't see that, but maybe I'm just not looking in the right place.  Thanks again.

I believe pled uses nfo for metadata. Make sure you check those boxes in the metadata section. But FYI. I could be horribly wrong.
