Some info on Synology NAS for use as a Channels DVR Server


Just wanted to share some information regarding Synology NAS’s with the community since that’s what I use, hopefully will help some members.

Not saying this is the best, most accurate info out there, but it’s helped me.

Note that these websites are U.S. based.

Making sense of Synology NAS Model Numbers

What CPU does my Synology NAS Have?

More info (possibly) on your Synology NAS CPU

What is the Synology Support Status for my NAS?


I have a DS918+ and a DS218+ and both work flawlessly for the DVR! The DS218+ I have at my girlfriends, and although it doesn’t have near the specs of the DS918+ I cannot tell the difference in performance when using the DVR. Hope this helps.
