  1. My hunch is that it has now been deprecated. Plex is the way to go.
  2. Hi Terry.

    Do you still allow registrations of the stablebit scanner for WHS V1?

    it says this content is no longer available :-P

  3. Personally, I think the Intel Celeron (J1900 or newer N3150) is the current sweet spot for a value server with media transcoding capabilities. As Drashna says, the Atom-based Avoton CPU can do a job for simple file serving, but if I was spending money - any money, I think the Celeron gives a little more headroom for future needs.... What you certainly *don't* need in a home system, is a Xeon! :-)
  4. Our Thecus W5810 review is now live: http://www.wegotserved.com/2016/01/22/review-thecus-w5810-windows-storage-server/ - it's not the prettiest, but it's the closest you'll get today to an off the shelf WHS replacement.
  5. No, now that the forum is responsive, there are no plans to reintroduce tapatalk.
  6. I don't know them but you should find a range of retailers online that would fit disks for you. That said, installing disks in a NAS is very easy. Pull out a tray, four screws, insert tray and you're done.
  7. It's not a mobile site, per se. The forums are now responsive, so they scale to whatever sized screen you're using.
  8. Hi, You can still get to recent threads/posts from the sidebar on the front page of the forums. Alternatively, click Unread Content, click Edit this Stream and you can tailor what you see in granular detail. The "Read Status" setting will be of particular interest, as you can toggle all content, or just show what you haven't seen.
  9. The new TS-251+ has an upgraded quad-core Celeron CPU that would easily perform the media tasks you need. It all comes down to whether you need something that's plug and play (QNAP) or a more open system on which you can install any Windows apps - with a little more complexity if you want to dig into the OS. Take a look at the QNAP app store and you can see what's available: https://www.qnap.com/i/en/app_center/
  10. Check out our review of the new Synology DS216play - it's a great option. http://www.wegotserved.com/2015/11/25/review-synology-diskstation-ds216play/
  11. Hi Mark, No, no cloud service required. The NAS simply acts like any other computer on your network - just one that has a lot of storage. Once set up, all you need to do is point the Sonos app to the music folder stored on the NAS and it'll search for your music. Here's a screenshot from my Sonos app, which points to a QNAP NAS I have on the network with my music library.
