Ronc,

Seems to be a nice Multimedia implementation.
This VoD (Video on Demand) architecture looks flexible.
Great job :mrgreen:

Im using mine to do the obivious stuff, holds automated backups of data from pcs on network, also has our whole cd collection stored as mp3s on it, which it serves out to an audiotron music stremer in the lounge, and shares for itunes to all pc's, twonyvision also allaows the xbox 360 etc to play music.

then it also downloads all our BTs and streams them to a beyonwiz DP-P1 in the lounge for movies and tv shows and the like ;)

I have also set it up to allow remote access to all mu files and music /pictures.


working a treat too !

Ever since email was fixed, I haven't had not one issue with my TS-409 Turbo. Works like a top now! What I don't get is why Qnap releases before ALOT of bugs are still in system. I guess that speeds up in finding bugs and saves millions in testing. Smart move.

Agreed. Having had my device fail twice now in the space of a month, requiring QNAP to restore it remotely, I wish they would stop releasing 'Stable' firmware which adds new features at the expense of reliability.

So... What are you doing with your Qnap?

Just sharing files on my network with no Twonky, BT, QPKG, Itunes or other services which seem to cause my system to fall down.

He means that this is a positive topic about nice things you can do with your Qnap.....not a topic where you complain about firmware...for that,make your own topic :wink:
The solution to the most difficult "problem" is usually very simple.

Qnap support

As a certified ** 8) and employed in the field of computers I use my Qnap for this:

edit: LoL, I cant write N e r d?? Got censured. In my world, that's a compliment! :wink:

1. FINALLY having ONE place for all of my data! :-) (why did'nt I by one sooner?)
2. Finally sleeping at night knowing my data are as safe as I can make them. :-)
3. Storing recorded tv from my mediacenter.
4. When ever I need access to one of my computers from work, or some other location, I use my nap to wake'em up :)
5. Finally after 2 days of work, today I turned off my server. The nap is doing almost everything it did. And my server used 200watt, my nap uses around 20 (now if I could only make those disks spin down!)
6. sFTP server to access my data off site.

Future plans :)
1. Running SMB shares trough ssh tunnels. Still trying to figure this out. Did'nt even know it was possible untill I read about it in a post in this forum. Would be so nice to be able to mount a share like a ordinary network share, off site.
2. Streaming media (music AND video) to my mobile phone, and to my office computer. I had Orb on my old server. I would like something similar on the nap. Anyone have any insights? I have flatrate on my mobile phone, so data is no concern.
3. Run newsgroup downloads. I use newzbin, so currently looking into the two QPKG supported sulutions. Looks like its performance against functionality/features. Anyone have any insights?

Did you figure out a solution similar to Orb for Qnap? I am very interested in similar functionality.
