I'm slightly loathe to post another Which NAS question on here but I'll freely admit I'm a little overwhelmed by the information both here and elsewhere.
I have quite a strict list of requirements so I'd be grateful if anyone who has a similar set-up could let me know what they are using.
If I can't find a NAS that will do all this stuff then I'll probably build a Linux box but I'm attracted to the convenience of a NAS. In summary, I'm looking for:
- 2 drive bays with RAID support
- the ability to stream a library of music in FLAC format to a squeezebox client
- the ability to transcode FLAC into MP3 or another suitable format on the fly and stream to devices that don't support FLAC
- the ability to stream video to a Samsung DLNA compatible TV
- the ability to automatically back-up/image a PC and Mac
- remote access to files over the web
I'm not actually sure that all this is even possible on a humble 2 bay NAS? As you may have guessed I'm a little rusty in this area.
