    Re: Qnap HS-251+

    Am I out of touch or is £290 not quite a lot of money for a diskless NAS?
    I'm looking for something I can pop 1 or 2 disks into to stream to phones/PS4/maybe a Fire TV stick around the house only but wouldn't want to spend anywhere near this amount on one? HDMI out is good but just use a cheaper NAS + a TV stick?

    Chromecast and the plex app will add a total of £30 and have the added bonus of being smaller and discreter in your living room and properly cooling the hard drives in the NAS!

    Re: Qnap HS-251+

    I have 2x TV tuners I have managed to get to work with a Qnap.
    A Hauppauge Nova TD and a Kworld 399U, and both a dual tuners.
    At present the Kworld is in my 469 and works great, while the Hauppauge is in my HTPC NUC (Win 8.1 with WMC). I prefer the Hauppauge in the NUC as it works better with WMC so I can do things like record a series even when they keep changing the time slot (they do it all the time in Australia).
    So I suspect that even if these are not listed on the Qnap compatibility chart for the 251, there's a good chance they will work. You could always put in a request on their compatibility page. The Kworld used to be listed on the 469's list, but for whatever reason is no longer, maybe because it is now as rare as rocking horse manure.
    Haven't had any major issues with my Qnap once I got it set up, so these 251's should work great.
