TS-109 Pro not visible?

Bought a second hand TS-109 Pro, downloaded QFinder Pro and the latest firmware 3.3.3. All installed correctly but cannot see it on the network or map a drive in windows 10 When I click Details in QFinder Pro, it comes up with a log in screen where I put default username and password, the it does a little search for a few seconds and closes down??? When I click on Network Drives, there is nothing to select in the Select IP Address dropdown box??? I know it's an old system but I wanted to try it out to share music and videos on my network. Thanks in advance

Synology Moments won't play videos?

This video (https://youtu.be/Lk0N0M5MLLc?t=340) shows that Synology Moments is supposed to play videos right in the app. But on both my Pixel 3 and my wife's S10e, when tapping on a video to play, we get prompted with a "select which app to play this video in". We're both connected to the same server, so I'm wondering if there's a server-side setting that I need to change. I can't imagine that Synology would remove that functionality if at one point it did play videos, as shown in the video linked above. Thanks for the help.

First time NAS recommendation?

My business partner and I are building a music studio and would like to have a server in order to efficiently work on multiple computers (we will have two different rooms, each with its own PC, but projects will need to be accessed in each room). While we will mainly be sharing project folders, we would also like to stream up to 4k video as well as share audio samples, photos, and other miscellaneous files. We’re curious which NAS would best fit our needs! Any help is greatly appreciated!

Synology NAS / Plex / Live TV / UK?

Is there a workable solution in the UK? I have a Synology DS216+II (hardware transcoder) running Plex. I would like to connect a TV tuner so as I can watch / record live TV (using Plex). I have tried (and returned) a Silicondust HDHomeRun CONNECT DUO (https://smile.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07BFNRGN9). This would not work without major buffering issues. My thinking is that I need hardware transcoding built into the tuner, but this does not seem to be available in the UK. Does anybody have any ideas?
