I’ve just finished tinkering with my antenna. I have a HD Homerun Connect Quatro and the channels app downloaded on IOS, Apple TV and a Google connected smart TV.
I’m currently looking at DVR storage options so that I can subscribe to the Channels DVR. I don’t have any old computers lying about so am purchasing from scratch. The NAS options seem to be either the QNAP 251+ or the Synology 218+. The Synology is the cheaper option at the moment by the look of things so I am leaning that way. I’ve looked at the Mac Mini and whilst I like the idea I would be looking at the base model which is only dual core 1.4 Ghz and still $429. I don’t think it has been updated since late in 2014 so does not look like good value. I would need a drive on top of that cost too.
Are there any newer NAS options that I have not considered? Will either of the above work for skipping commercials etc? Anything else I am missing? Overall this represents a large amount of up front outlay. I am hoping that in the long run I will be smiling every time I see an Xfinity ad on TV.
I’d be grateful for any sage like advice.
