Setup

Prerequisites

Follow the instructions from Plex Support to set the package trust level on your NAS and import the package signing key from Plex Inc.

Important: do not skip this step otherwise automatic package installation will be forbidden by DSM 6. As of DSM 7, this setting does not appear to be necessary and available anymore.

Installation

Enter a root shell on your NAS (log in via SSH, then sudo -i) and run:

# mkdir -p /volume1/Scripts
# cd /volume1/Scripts
# wget -O syno-plex-update.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/YuriyGuts/syno-plex-update/master/syno-plex-update.sh
# chmod +x syno-plex-update.sh

Scheduled Task Setup

In Control Panel > Task Scheduler, click Create > Scheduled Task > User-defined script:

bash /volume1/Scripts/syno-plex-update.sh
