Looking for a relatively inexpensive network storage system to rip my DVD to that can be accessed wirelessly through computers and TV in the home
Does it not have some sort of DLNA plug in for your library? That's what lets all my devices see my NAS.It probably depends on the device's that you plan to use to access the files.
I have a Western Digital NAS which works great as a dvr for my HDhomerun tuners. I also have a bunch of movies ripped to it. Unfortunately, I'm only able to access the movies on pc and my phone. My tv can't access the movies and neither can my Nvidia shield TV's.
You inspired me to look. Their own software can't find it now, despite the fact that I'm using it to watch Sunday's game.Does it not have some sort of DLNA plug in for your library? That's what lets all my devices see my NAS.
This is odd. I just got it to mount on a shield but windows can't find it. If it ends here I'll take it but it's frustrating that I can never get everything working at once.Do you know what model it is?
I was going to suggest Plex, I have been a long time user. Your TV is it not Smart App capable, because the Plex app should be available, but you already probably crossed that bridge.Not immediately
It's an older "MyCloud." My phone app is on OS3. This model doesn't have a transcoder and the newer models do. I think that I could use plex to access it on the nvidia shield.
I set one up at the union hall last year. I think that it was the 918+. It seems like overkill for a media server but it would be very good. It was so easy to set up raid. I gave up having all of my discs on drives because I was constantly ripping discs to replace failed drives. The Synology would have been nice.I mentioned a few weeks ago that my NAS took a crap on me, but it worked flawlessly for over 9 years and the drives are still intact, so I can't complain. The flash chip got fubar on the motherboard, and since they don't make the motherboard for my model any longer, I need to get a new one.
I had a 5-bay Synology NAS with 4 2TB drives (the 5th drive was a spare). Synology aren't the cheapest around, but I can say that it was a great investment. I'll get another one when I can, but I just don't feel like dropping that much coin right now.
