    Home Setting up NAS for iTunes Server

    I've just changed houses and am having trouble connecting my QNAP NAS to my home network. I'm using an Eero WiFi network, but I can't place the QNAP next to the Eero and plug it in directly (no room). The internet comes via GPON (fiber), then goes into an access point, which, in turn, is...

    Storage Solution for Video Production Business - NAS?

    We are a team of creatives looking to solve our growing storage issues as I’m sure most businesses discover. The majority of our work is video and now more often than not we filming in 4K. On average a job/project will consume roughly 200GB in its entirety which includes the raw footage...

    Clone laptops to NAS, backup NAS to cloud?

    I'm looking into a onsite and offsite backup solution for a two-laptop household (with each a 256GB) plus 100-150GB of files on an external drive. Here are my current plans. Any suggestions to improve these will be greatly appreciated. 1. Each person has a iCloud account, syncing ~/Documents...

    NAS mount via launch daemon script - what else could be recreating mount? + Thunderbolt woes

The...

    2 Macs - "best of both worlds" NAS / DAS - AFP vs NFS re permissions

    Our family has 2 iMacs and I want us to be able to use either one of them and have access to all of our files the same way as if they were on a local drive / DAS. So, I bought a QNAP Thunderbolt NAS (perhaps overkill ;-) because that's exactly one of the scenarios they advertise (having a NAS...

    QNAP M.2 SSD carrier board with 10GB NIC

    Not sure if anyone has seen this interesting piece of hardware from QNAP. It is the QM2-2P10G1T. The carrier holds 2 M.2 SSDs and QNAP sells separate models for NVME SSDs and SATA SSDs. Doesn't work except in QNAP NAS devices - but would be awesome if someone could hack it to work with Macs...

    Best ATV app for playing music from NAS?

    I use Infuse to play all my movies & TV shows from my QNAP NAS and it works brilliantly. Sadly, it doesn't offer a music playback capability. I can use QNAP's own QMusic app - but it's pretty clunky. I'm reluctant to set a Plex server capability up for just music. I know Plex can do movies...
