Plex Server suddenly works on TS-231?!!

Post by peanutismint » Wed Feb 05, 2020 4:04 am

I'm happy to report that after years of ownership and years of Plex server crashing/being generally unusable it suddenly seems like it's working. I don't know what changed, maybe a firmware update or Plex update or what, and it's still not a powerful enough NAS to transcode EVERYTHING, but it's better than it was before (which was 'non-working').

Anybody else finding this NAS works on Plex now??
Mac OS X 10.11 Beta
QNAP TS-231
WD Red 4TB

If Qnap allows you to install Plex then one would think it will work (under basic conditions)
After all it is the cheapest Qnap NAS and has an ARM processor.

Better off using the NAS for storage (or was that what u were doing ?) and get a shield or older mac mini to use as a server.
Qnap TS-1277 1700 (48gb RAM) 6x8TB WD White, 2x8TB WD Red - Raid5, 2x M.2 Crucial 1TB (Raid 1 VM),
2x SSD 860 EVO 500gb (Raid1 QTS), 2x SSD 860 EVO 250GB (Cache), 2x M.2 PCIe 970 500gb NVME (Raid1 Plex and Emby server)
GTX 1050 TI
Qnap TVS-1282 i7 (32GB RAM) 8x10TB WD White - Raid 6, 2x M.2 Crucial 500gb (Raid1 VM),
2x SSD EVO 500gb (Raid1 QTS), 2x SSD EVO 250gb (Raid1 Cache), 2x M.2 PCIe Intel 512GB NVME (Raid1-Servers)
Synology -1817+ - 2x10,2x8,2x6 (Ironwolf) 2x6 (WD Red) - SHR
Drobo 5n - 3x2TB WD Green, 2x3TB WD Red - Drobo Raid
ProBox 8 Bay USB3 - 8x4TB Seagate - JBOD
All software is updated asap.
I give my opinion from my experience i.e. I have (or had) that piece of equipment/software and used it! :roll:
