Replacing the fan in an Asustor AS6604t?

Is the fan in an Asustor AS6604t easily replaced? I'm upgrading from an old fanless NAS and am wondering what my options are if I don't like the fans on the new unit.

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.

Link Aggregation with AS5202T and Zyxel XGS1210-12 Switch?

Has anyone had experience with the Zyxel XGS1210-12 switch and setting up link aggregation on it with their NAS (specifically Asustor)? I'm trying but not having much luck. Thanks.

I want to place my Asustor NAS between my PC and switch- but it doesn't work correctly?

I just bought an Asustor Nimbustor AS5304T. This has dual 2.5Gbe ethernet ports. My PC has a 10Gbe ethernet port but my switch is only 1Gbe capable. So I tried to place my NAS 'between' the PC and the switch, hoping that the PC would see the NAS at 2.5Gbe whilst the PC and NAS would then see the rest of the world at only 1Gbe. To be clear, NAS ethernet port 1 to PC, NAS ethernet port 2 to switch. However, when I do this the PC cannot see the internet, but can see the NAS. How can I achieve what I want, without having to buy an expensive new switch? Thanks! PS I'm not a Trump nut, I just mispelled Mega :-)

QNAP TS-253be Vs Asustor AS5202T Or Maybe TS-251D?

QNAP TS453be vs Asustor AS5202T I am new to NAS and looking at my first purchase. In short, I would like to be able watch media locally by HDMI using a service like Plex, have some further space for backing up material and have the ability to access the drive over the internet. I think my budget will extend to a 2-bay NAS and I expect my initial storage to be 4TB in RAID 1 or 6TB in RAID 1. After much research, I think i have narrowed my choice to between the QNAP TS-253Be and the Asustor AS5202T. I am having difficulty in deciding which to opt for. In support of the Asustor, it appears to be a little cheaper, it supports HDMI 2.0 (and so can play higher quality media and is somewhat future proofed over HDMI 1.4 in the QNAP), and it has DDR4 RAM. The QNAP appears to have a more powerful quad-core processor. Further, though I am less clear on this, I think the QNAP better supports its HDMI output.
