    Does anyone have Plex items showing up under when searching via the main Google Search?

    I've selected Plex under the Searchable Items, but Plex results do not show up?

    I have the latest version of Plex installed.


    According to posts in the Plex forums, this should be working but there are a handful of users with the same issues.

    thx in advance

    on a vizio costar. up to date plex server on a windows 8 machine and plex client on the vizio. the client sees all my videos. I have plex checked in the options in the google search options on the vizio, but search does still not seem to search plex (or returns no results at least).

    Hello,

    I recently purchased a Sony nsz-gs8 and the search (Google or Primetime) does not search my plex server. Has anyone seen a fix for this?

    Hi. I found this thread (see below) about the search problem with Plex. There is a fix suggested in the thread. I hope that it works for you. (Also you can try going to your system settings and force stop & clear data from the search app).
