What Synology for DLNA?

Postby Sand » Thu Mar 16, 2017 11:48 am

want to buy NAS Synology but don't know which model.

Have 2 TVs at home + 1 Apple TV. I'm watching movies/TV series via Apple TV (Infuse Pro app) currently from old computer. So I want to buy NAS for storing movies and series.

2 options:
Synology DS416play + 2x3TB WD Red (550 EUR)

Synology DS215j + 2x2TB WD Red (300 EUR)

What do you think? Will be "j" ok?

I just tried this exact setup. Very slow with the 416Play and Apple TV and Infuse. I'm thinking of getting a 916+ or just getting an Intel NUC or Mac mini and have the NAS just feed files to it.
