    Re: Synology DS216j

    To be honest, although I would never say no to a speed boost on principle, I haven't really noticed any significant delays with our DS215J. We chose Synology because it was easy to set up as a Subversion repository (SVN can be downloaded from their site) and the only criticism I could give is that it was difficult to set up RAID when adding a second disc. We should have splashed out on both disks in the first place.

    No official Twonky server. The official one is called Video Station / Media Station. Regarding muxing and transcoding, DS216j is part of Group 2. You should search for "Can my Synology NAS transcode videos for my device?" (I am too new in this forum).

    Plex and Servioo are part of community packages, but they have mostly the same limitations as the official ones.
