Quickapp follow the state of my TV on the plex server. Therefore, it doesn't matter what TV you use, or whatever else. On plex server every device (TV, smartphone, tablet, PS, nvdia Shield...) have own "machineIdentifier" what you can follow with QuickApp.

- state 0 - plex on tv not playing

- state 1 - movie/serial is pauzed

You can install the Plex Media Server software on a Windows, Mac, or Linux computer, or a compatible network-attached storage (NAS) device, then play it back on any other internet-connected device capable of running the Plex app.

Use any compatible device to watch movies, listen to music, and view pictures stored on a computer that runs Plex Media Server. Access media files stored on your Plex Media Server computer remotely over the internet. Allow friends and family to access your movies, music, and pictures over the internet.
