Plex is only available as server (officially), so you need a player to connect to

With an external player you can also do HDR (qnap units can't do HDR, they are pretty bad as players)

Oops, I assumed I would be able to play back on the QNAP also. Thank you.

Most SMART TV's have Plex build in, so no need to have that loud NAS close to your TV

I now have my server on an iMac and use my LG smart TV or an Apple TV connected to the LG TV to play back. I guess I will just stick with that combination.
