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

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.
I think that it's just the Western Digital software. A couple of months ago I couldn't access the MyCloud on anything but a pc or my phone. Tonight, I am able to access the MyCloud on my Nvidia Shields, my phone, my tv (via VLC), and via a browser on my pc. But, I can't use the Western Digital software to access the Western Digital MyCloud.

It's likely that nothing will work next week.

How many DVDs are we talking? I don't really do DVDs any more, but the ones I have are ripped onto a 1TB HD and I just run a PLEX server off of my main desktop for the (very) few times that I actually need to access it. If I'm watching something from PLEX, then I'm not using the PC, so I don't care much about the performance (though it's not much of a hit anyway).

The real fun is mapping my Google Drive as a drive for PLEX via Google Drive Sync. Then I can store my stuff in the cloud (unlimited storage on Google Drive) but watch it through PLEX. Best of both worlds.
