PlexConnect will not start

After the latest update of PlexConnect (May 17th) PlexConnect would not show any movies- just giving error messages.

Time – the butter must remain chilled so there’s a continuous need to refrigerate during the process A good bread oven – which a kamado certainly is. Make sure that you have your kamado up to temperature and not just internally, right through the ceramic shell. That way even when you open the lid to place your croissants in, the kamado returns to temperature really quickly, just like in a traditional bread kiln. “
