I've been researching on the internet for some months now and all the different options are confusing so eventually thought I better just ask for some advice from the people who know...
I would like to set up a home theatre system that allows primarily for playing our collection of music and DVDs (+-10TB) on our 2013 Sony 1080p TV and ideally also on a few mobile devices (iPad, iPhone, android phone, etc). I also continue using a number of online streaming platforms from back home in the UK although I know live in Europe, so a solution which allows for VPN and outputting an online stream to the TV is also the goal. Finally, in the long run I'm sure everything will go to 4K so it would be good to be able to futureproof against that as I'm sure eventually we will get a 4K TV.
I had just about settled on a QNAP TVS-673 but today more reading has lead me to wonder whether the better solution might not actually be an HTPC (specifically for the VPN streams) in addition to a NAS of some kind to host and serve the local data.
Is that a correct assumption or could something like that QNAP 673 NAS actually handle everything itself?
Apologies if this is posted in the wrong forum, just took a guess at which would be the right one for this question.
Thanks for your suggestions!
