    Over the past few months, Plex SPKs have uploading issues when manually updating Plex. After I select the SPK, it takes at least a minute before the first signs of upload appear on the Synology widget. This then stretches out for 2-3 minutes before a pop-up window appears that tells me...

    Synology 920+ Plex Installation Nightmare!

    Hi, I am trying to install Plex on my 920+. I've tried both the direct download and the Beta package. With the former I get an installation error which says I need a higher version of DMS — I'm on the latest 7.x version so I don't understand this. That way doesn't work then, so I try the Beta...

    DS1621+ as a plex server to play 4K remuxes via Nvidia shield ? (no transcoding ever, direct play only)

    Hello, I'm eyeing the DS1621+. I'll use it as a storage / plex server only. I know the DS1520+ is cheaper but I like the improved build quality on the DS1621+ and the extra bay. Would it do a good job in my case ? Or is the lack of integrated GPU a real problem ? Thank you !
