Synology DS212j and Sony KDL 40HX853
English

I've just changed my NAS drive to the Synology DS212j. It works really well and my laptop, Nexus 7 and Xperia Z can all see and access the drive. Unfortunately, my Sony HX853 TV won't see the NAS on the network.

I've got the NAS connected to my network by Powerline and the TV is also connected to the powerline network. Is the a setting that I'm missing so that my TV can see the NAS as I want to be able to show pictures and videos I have stored on it?

 

Thanks.

You probably need to install the Media Server package on the Synology so it becomes a DLNA server, and then organise the media you want the TV to be able to access within this.

Thanks for the quick reply Professorhat. I had indeed failed to download the Media Server program. I'll try that tonight and hopefully it does the trick.

after instsalling the media server on my NAS my TV picked it up straightaway!
