Re: Manually changing "Meta Data" not working...

Did you find a solution? I'm having the same issue. I have a couple of videos that I have been trying to update the metadata. I go through the process but it doesn't save the changes.

How Do I Download Playlists on My Ipad as a Playlist?

Is it not possible to download playlists as a playlist on to my iPad? I've figured out how to download the tracks but then they don't remain as a playlist.

Drive Cover for 212+ ?

Where can I find a replacement drive cover for a 212+? Bought one on eBay for 95.00 but need the drive cover. Is it a big deal to run it without?

When are DSM upgrades no longer available?

Currently have a 212J and would like to by another but wondering when this model will become obsolete? I had a 209 and know that DSM upgrades stopped at 4.2, is there a systematic way Synology goes about this?

Using Cloud Sync to Keep Offsite DS In Sync via OD?

I have a server in my house and my parents house. Could I use CS to do an upload only from my server to OD and a download only to their server from OD? What if I did the initial transfer locally via cable then moved the DS back to their house? Would Cloud Sync be able to figure this out?

If I Already Have Some of the Files in OD What Happens?

I want to back up my movies to OD using a one way sync. What happens if I already have about half of the movies in OD that are in my movie folder on my DS? Will it give me the option to replace or ignore?

2 Bay with One Drive Faster Than 1 Bay with One Drive?

When comparing the 115J to the 215J the two bay model has twice the ram and a dual core processor. Does this mean that the 215J should perform better than the 115J if only a single drive is used? In other words if I was planning on a single bay model but the cost difference is minimal for a two bay ...

Is the J to the + Models a WOW?

Currently have two 212J servers and have gotten along very well. Going to give one of them to my parents and put another in a RV so it's time for a new DS. I'm using the DS to serve music to my Sonos system and using it to serve video via DS Video to some Rokus in the house. All of my video files ar...

Re: Posters for Movie Database

Not sure if this answers your question but you can manually download posters. I usually go to google, do an image search, save it to my hard drive and then select it from there.

DS Video Thumbnails Very Slow...Server or Player Limitation?

I have a DS212J running Surveillance Station, Audio Station, and DS Video. I use iPads, iPhones, and Rokus to access DS Video. On the phones and the ipads the thumbnails for video files load in a reasonable amount of time, not instant but not bad. On the Rokus they are painfully slow. Is this a limi...

Re: New Apple TV - How to watch Video Station Movies?

Plex is wonderful. I've been playing around for the last couple of days and I can't recommend it highly enough. I've been using it for a couple of years as generic playback tool but now that the Apple TV has built in support I'm using it all the time now. Stable, fast and cool. I've been able to pl...

Re: Playlists Showing File Names instead of Track Names

I figured it out. It didn't like the format of the playlists I was using. I used a different format and all is well.
