I cannot get the Synology NAS DS918+ to connect to any of my Reolink Argus Eco Rechargeable Battery-Powered WiFi Cameras. My cameras are connected to my router and are working fine through the Reolink app, but I cannot get them connected to my NAS. I have run the surveillance station and have tried to let it search for it through the (ONVIF) and nothing is pulling up at all! I have even entered the ip address manually but it will not connect, please help me and let me know what I am doing wrong. Thank you so much!

Archer MR600

Hey Nas, I have awful broadband speeds in my rural area but decent 2/3 bars of 4g. I have just seen your review but would you recommend the Archer MR600 or the Huawei B525-4G 300Mbps, CAT 6? Both similar prices. It will mainly be used for online gaming and HD streaming. Also, could a power line set up be used for greater distances? Many Thanks James

QNAP TBS-453D?

I have studied for years QNAP NAS, ever time I get ready to purchase I find something new. I was getting ready to purchase the ts 451+ , then l saw your review of the QNAP TBS-453D. I really like the size and portability. I have read, watched all reviews I could find on the QNAP TBS-453D. My question are: 1. What is the release schedule for this device? 2. What drives would you recommend? 3. Have you verified that 16 g of ram works? My use case is home use, multimedia, photos, and music. Family is working on genealogy, Family photo library, creating digital images via scanner of all old photos. Look forward to your response, will purchase in the next 30 days unless new release expected soon.

NAS drive - needs to be accessible for use for working from home for any/all of the staff (especially during the Co?

We are looking at setting up a NAS for use in the parish council office where the 4 staff are currently using a share of one of the desktop machines. I think 4TB should be ample for current needs, although I need to discuss with the Clerk what future needs might be. The NAS also needs to be accessible for use for working from home for any/all of the staff (especially during the Covid-19 pandemic). The NAS doesn't need to be a media streamer as this is purely work - primarily documents of varying types and some photos - not pleasure. I'm currently looking at the WD PRO4100 as an option - is this sensible or is there something else that would suit needs better? There is some flexibility in the budget as it was set prior to the requirement for homeworking being added. Thank you for taking a look at this for me. Hopefully it is fairly easy for you to answer.

Can I transcode a 1080p ProRes LT .mov file to 1080p (h264) .mp4 with Qnap?

I've chosen the QNAP TVS-872XT for a variety of reasons but I have couple of questions I can't find an answer to... Maybe you can help? 1. Video Transcoding: Can I transcode a 1080p ProRes LT .mov file to 1080p (h264) .mp4 with that NAS? And will I be able to automate the process from a portable HDD in the front "USB copy" port? (the reason I'm unsure is because I read you can only transcode down resolution ie from 4K to 1080 but I'm uncertain about 1080 to 1080)

NAS storage on two networks, synced?

Aloha, I'm a professional photographer and work out of a home office as well as a gallery elsewhere. I am wondering if there is an easy to use solution that would allow me to keep a desktop NAS or similar in both locations on two different networks that would sync with one another automatically? I'd like to be able to work directly on the devices if possible, using Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom etc with sometimes quite large image files (2gb and beyond). Something large enough to back up everything would be nice, as well as expandable down the road. I expect I'll need battery backups on them along with the modem, router, etc. Currently using a 2015 5k imac at the gallery, a 2019 imac pro at home and a late 2015 macbook pro on the road. I essentially need to be able to work from a drive on various networks and have them back up automatically to a different location for redundancy. I'd prefer to keep the cloud out of it to keep monthly recurring costs down (I'm currently storing perhaps 16tb or images and shoot about 100-500gb a month) I do also work from the road sometimes, is it feasible to upload to these drives from the macbook pro remotely for backup? The ability to work from the drives remotely would also be great, but I'm not sure if that's practical. I'm currently using OWC enclosures hooked up directly to my office computer in a RAID 1 configuration, storing 2nd drives as they fill up in an alternate location. Worked pretty well for me with one computer, but suddenly it's very clunky and I'm constantly carrying a portable external drive around and still finding myself without an excel file I need or without the newest version of an image that I need to finish editing, etc. Any suggestions you can offer would be very much appreciated! I've skimmed Drobo and Synology but it's overwhelming, not my forte. Lyle

NAS as a small music server to work with SONOS?

I am looking for a NAS as a small music server. I am using a Buffalo Link station at present. My library is small compared with others. It currently is 250gb of Flac I do not see this going beyond 500 gb I have seen a set up where someone had set up a music server using the DS218j. Whilst I am sure this does the job well, I prefer the appearance of the Play version. The set up I saw was using Plex to sort his libraries which I liked and would want to include this feature. Most of the time I will play back through a Sonos system. I do not visulalise wanting to connect to the NAS externally (outside my home) so all my equipment will play the Flac media. So will the DS218 play suit my purpose, and if I set it up on 1 disc can I add a second later and arrange it in a raid situation so that I have a back-up if one disk fails.

Plex and Multimedia Console sharing Libraries?

I am confused whether Plex and Multimedia Console apps like Qmagie can share the same folders. I will be using HD Station and noted that the Plex apps for this had been removed. It would be safer it seems to just use the apps that come with HD Station. I found only one reference to this issue which suggested that sharing libraries/folders between Plex and Qnap apps would upset Plex.

WD Red 6TB using SMR omg?

I have a Qnap NAS and two WD Red 6TB hard disks. Trying to decide between static/thick/thin. I know there is a performance hit but quite like the flexibility of thin as would setup three volumes with snapshot on one and over-provision. I can't get a handle on how much the performance hit might be. Also I was horrified to find out my WD Reds are using SMR. As I will setup as a RAID1 I wondered if thin would be a problem with these drives versus static. Cheers...
