Question on N54L xpenology HMDI support

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am new to this wonderful forum though I have been reading this forum for a while, first time to post.

 

I have a question for HP N54L running xpenology, since N54L comes with a PCI slot, I am wondering if I could install a low profile video card with HDMI, then I could watch video directly from it on TV.

 

I know installing card should be easy, I just worry there is no HDMI/video card support from DSM, anyone has experience of it. Thanks in advance.

As far as I can find the N54L in itself supports a stand alone GPU, however DSM does NOT support it.

 

So all in all if you want to use it as a media player you will need to run something other then DSM on it.

 

If anyone has any other experiences I'll happily be corrected but yea...

Thank you, that is what I thought. Just curious, DSM should support GPU/HMDI, because its play version, like DS414play, has HDMI. It may depend on its own driver.

Where did you see HDMI on any synology model?

Oh, no, you are right, play version has NO HDMI, confused with QNAP.

 

So, no hope to run it as media player, unless run it in virtual machine in N54L.
