    I didn't know that plex won't work with the apple mouse. I just downloaded plex and the mouse didn't work and i'm wondering who has experience with this app.

    By default Plex doesn't need a mouse. You can enable a mouse under preferences but I found it to be buggy. The keyboard commands are easy enough to navigate through Plex.

    My Apple remote works like a dream for me in Plex. ;)

    As mentioned the mouse can be enabled in the preferences.

    By the way, Plex has excellent forums of their own.

    I think you should read the manual first. http://tr.im/mVsh

    I find there is no need for the mouse, you can navigate via keyboard fairly easy. You just have to access hulu to watch tv... not on my computer at the moment, so cant walk you through, but the manual should be enough.

    The plugin structure allows you to access all kinds of programming but the Hulu plugin is your best "all encompassing" one. To get the plugins, go to the App Store on the main menu.
