Synology DS212j or DS413j NAS with WD-Red 3TB HD's as an iTunes Server
Wed, Sep 26 2012, 9:26AM
I am in the process of ordering one of the above Synology NAS drives with the WD-Red 3TB WD30EFRX hard drives in a RAID1 mirroring format to use as an iTunes Media Server for our home. The NAS will interact via the AppleTV3, I hope!
Could anyone provide any additional do's and don'ts to enable this setup to work. I looked on the Synology website and could not find any instructions as to how one imports music and video to the SynologyNAS once it is setup and running. Or is that automatic as it is in fact the defacto storage of the iTunes Library and the iTunes application on any computer is just an interface? That is my understanding.
BTW, if I order the larger 4 bay variant, then it is planned to also double as a home surveillance/camera server with ABUS outside cameras.
BigBoss, I see you have a SynologyNAS media server setup, I'd appreciate your views.
Thank you in advance for any and all feedback.
