I am looking into purchasing a NAS to store all my digital content, since my PS3 is running out of space and starting to show its limitations.
The question I have is regarding setting up a NAS. As of right now, I have my eye on the Synology DS213. I would like to use Plex as my media center software. I just do not know how. Do I place the software directly onto the server, or do I need another device to do so? In addition I would prefer not to run the server wirelessly. I much rather plug it into my TV directly. If I were to pair it with a set top box such as a WD media player or something else you could suggest, could I just stream all of my media servers content through the box? Would that even work if I have 6TB's worth of storage? If that does not work, what if I get a Mac Mini (getting kinda expensive), could I just link the server with the Mac via USB and acces the server that way?
PS: if there is no set top box that supports plex, a equivilant software solution would be fine with me as well. I just like how Plex adds all that info to media files.
