New builds of Plex Home Theater for Debian, this time with both amd64 and i386 architecture. WARNING Due to the addition of new architectures I have switched repository layout, thus the old entries will not work anymore.
Add the following lines to your sources.list:

You can also grab the binary for amd64 directly here for amd64 and i386, you can get the source package with
The release file and changes file are signed with my official Debian key 0x860CDC13.
Again the previous WARNING The location has changed, there is not a new component sid to be entered!

That is wheezy, you have to use the repositories described in the first post of this thread: https://forums.plex.tv/index.php/topic/87255-the-plex-home-theater-debs-thread/
My builds are for jessie/sid.
I installed this on my Debian jessie following the above without issues. I can’t start the plex server though. Where are the scripts located ?
this is Plex Home Theater, *not* the Plex Media Server. You need to have a Plex Media Server running somewhere on your home network, or be logged into PlexPass to connect to your servers.
The Plex Home Theater does not provide any server capabilities, it is a player.
Hope that helps!
Hello Norbert….this explains the missing scripts then! Thank you. Are you not compiling the server then ?
No, as there are packages for the PMS, and I don’t have need for it 😉
