I want to get a NAS which has at least 2TB of storage, and it will have all of my 1080p/720p videos on it.


So my TV/Router setup is the following:

Living Room has my TV/Popcorn Hour (PCH) and Office has my router. I will have to use a wireless setup regardless.


Where should I put my NAS? Can I put my NAS in my living room and connect it via USB to the PCH for better speeds? I would also use some type of Router/Bridge to connect the NAS wirelessly to my router in my office.


or


Would a wireless solution be better by putting the NAS in the office? and streaming the videos off the network?


What should I do?

Try playing videos off your PC over wireless first. Wireless is very hit-or-miss and far from guaranteed success.

May NAS options don't support that sort of operation.


I suppose the best option would be to hook the NAS/PCH to a switch, and both to a bridge to connect back to the office PC/router. That will eliminate the wireless issues from playback with the PCH.
