The goal of Plex is to create a complete solution for all your online and local media needs.For the purpose of this guide I will take a look at Plex Media Server, which acts as a central media management database for distributing all your content to your various playback devices.The first step to figuring out the cause would be to turn on Plex's debug mode to see what information it can provide and then post the logs. Also there is a QNAP support forum on Plex's website HERE that is a pretty good source of help/support as well.......................XXXX sake.
Once installed, select "Go PLEX" from the Home Screen (scroll to Settings, select "Go PLEX").
There are some modified XBMC skins to fully integrate Ple XBMC into XBMC - so you get easier access to your media and a better Plex-like experience.
I updated Plex to Version 220.127.116.1100 and it did not fix the issue, but rather another issue came up; the Plex home screen would now not come up.
After some research on the web, I got Plex up and running again after using the following SSH commands:$(getcfg -f /etc/config/Plex Media Server Install_path)/stoprm "$(getcfg -f /etc/config/Plex Media Server Install_path)/Library/Plex Media Server/plexmediaserver.pid"$(getcfg -f /etc/config/Plex Media Server Install_path)/start It is still not grabbing artwork or displaying screenshots, but grabs textual meta data.

Download the zip of the version you'd like to install, and "install from zip file" in XBMC.
Even for serious geeks with a lot of experience managing their media, it’s a huge pain to get all your devices talking and accessing the same collection. Plex is a centralized media server system that eliminates virtually every problem you run into while managing a large personal media collection.
The Plex model is simple: you park all your media on a single computer with the Plex server software installed, and then you install Plex on on all your other devices.
Requirements: As per the Plex website, here are the requirements (once again, specifically for Windows): Windows minimum requirements • Windows XP SP3, Vista, or Windows 7 • Flash and Silverlight video requires Windows Vista or Windows 7 • Direct X 9.0c compatible graphics card • An Intel Core 2 Duo processor or equivalent • At least 2GB of RAM, 4GB recommended For optimal performance and compatibility with Plex Media Manager, we recommend Google Chrome, Safari, Fire Fox, or IE9 with Google Chrome Frame. In order to play Flash and Silverlight video, you will need to install the plug-ins on your computer before running the Plex Media Server.
Install the Flash version from here and make sure you select the “Other Browser” version. Once the installer is downloaded simply double click to begin the installation process.
Currently the two best supported Ple XBMC-enabled skins are Amber and Arctic: Zephyr.
