    I have finally set up plexconnect on my Apple TV3 and am loving it. Everything is working perfectly.

    The only thing I am having difficulty understanding is how to set up plexconnect on my mac so it runs automatically when the computer is turned on.
    I have read that it is possible to run it as a deamon but I have searched for guides on how to do this and to be honest, I dont really understand it.
    Does anybody know of a good how to guide on setting this up?

    Plexify may help with this although the project has been discontinued. Its essentially a GUI version to manage PlexConnect

    Look inside the /support/OSX folder for scripts to install/uninstall/restart the daemon on OSX.
    If you have any further issues pop by the PlexConnect sub forum at Plex where you will find any answers to other questions you may have :)
