Connecting DiskStation to LED TV

Recommended Posts

Hello Friends:

I have my Xpenology diskstation DSM 5.1 working.

Is it possible to connect it to LED TV using USB port?? Has anyone tried it before? Also which applications we can use to manage movie files?

 

Thanks for your help.

Configure VideoStation or Plex and use DLNA to stream multimedia files from your NAS.

From the TV point of view, you just have to connect it to the same network (preferably with cable) and then select NAS as source

I had wrote a tutorial on how to use DLNA server on Synology Nas with a LED Samsung TV if you want to have an idea on how it works. It was for a previous DSM version but it still the same woking idea with new DSM 5.1 .

Your TV should have an Ethernet connection to have it working.

No possibility through usb. A simple solution could be using a hardware player like an appletv

A Raspberry Pi would probably be the cheapest solution. You should be able to pick up one of the old ones easily now that they have released the Pi 2, which is also very cheap to buy and has much better performance for virtually the same low power consumption.

A simple low cost option is to run Plex on Synology and stream to a Chromecast.

Quality is good but you need a smartphone or tablet to act as a remote. The phone/tablet are not used once streaming has started.
