Disk upgrade after 3 years: what's better?

Current disks: 2x WD Red 4TB WD40EFRX Bought in January 2018 for £117 each. Observations: 1) things have not got cheaper since then, have they? 2) it's hard to find 5400 rpm drives now 3) it's hard to find full spec sheets. I don't want to increase noise and power consumption by much but I can't find numbers for either my old drives or prospective new ones. Nor can I find out the number of platters to judge heat output. My NAS box is really a fanless Linux desktop PC (in a weird silent case). Hence only 2 bays, and I run them in RAID 1. Considering 2 options: a) 12TB or more, and hope noise and heat aren't too much worse. b) 8TB in the hope of finding a cool and quiet drive. Thoughts most welcome! Thanks!

Asustor AS6604t Plex playback via HDMI to LG OLED TV?

Have Plex currently installed on the NAs without issue and can play via streaming through my LG TV. I have connected the NAs directly to the HDMI port on the TV but cannot figure out what I am missing to get direct playback though HMDI not the network. Do I need to install asustor portal? When connected there is no image displayed on the TV. Sorry for the noob question but I am rather new to the NAS world.

Which NAS?

Hi all, I have been researching which NAS to buy, I know I wasn’t a four bay. My use cases would be for my business but the NAS will be at my home. We have a very mixed use, normal files and documents like spreadsheets etc but also video and audio content that we edit. Two people work from my location and I would want to give access or share files with other team members outside the office. I’m tempted to go with a synology four bay but just not sure. Would need about 40-100tb. I have gigabit internet and ASUS AX8 router. I have looked at ASUSTOR and Synology. Added: budget would be around 500-1000 , but happy to invest in more for quality or reliability Sorry in advance for how boring this question might be for you all.

Synology Moments and viewing mp4 in timeline view in Shared Photo Library?

Edit 31May21 : Synology support recognise this as a bug. Their response is that unless a video has the following XMP tag then Moments will also look to the modification date not the creation date when ordering them after a copy event all videos : XMP.video.Date.UTC (In UTC %Year:%Month:%Date:%Time format) quicktime videos : Xmp.xmp.com.apple.quicktime.creationdate So that leads to 2 questions 1) where can I find this Tag? Synology supprt tells me that some of my videos have it, and some don't, but can't explain to me where to find it 2) if I find the Tag, can I edit it? Can I bulk edit at the same time? Can anyone recreate my bug : In copying .mp4 files from Moments User Photo Library to the Shared Photo Library, the Creation Date is overwritten by the modification date of the copy, and the Shared timeline view orders .mp4s then by the date of copy. This does not appear to be the case for .jpg, .mov, .heic etc. So - if today I copy say a month's worth of files from my User Library into Shared, and look at the Shared Timeline view, everything looks OK apart from all the .mp4, which all are ordered into today, and not by creation date. If anyone can recreate it, are there any fiendish workarounds? I attach screenshots of a .jpg and .mp4 each in my User Library, and then the timeline view and metadata as seen in the Shared Library Annoyingly, it is not consistent - an .mp4 from 2 years ago, when copied to the Shared, remains with the correct Creation Date and is ordered correctly in the Shared Photo Library Even more annoyingly, a jpg from 2 years ago, when copied to the Shared, had its creation date modified and appeared in the Shared as today aaaarggghhh oh fyi the use case : having a shared photo library of family stuff that both me and my partner can selectively add to, rather than having a shared album that only either of us can add to
