    Well...at least I tried it but wasn´t successful in the end.

    What did I do:
    (i) used Notepad++, copy&past the code mentioned from Apesbrain and updated the Mac address with the one for my player (the Nexus 7) => saved the file as "custom-convert.conf" on my NAS (mounted to Explorer)
    (ii) opened putty, logged in on my NAS with "root" and the pw I use to access DSM and moved the file to the folder where the "convert.conf" file is located (in my case /volume1/@appstore/LmsRepack/)
    (iii) logged in the GUI of my NAS and clicked on package center. Stopped "LMS Repack" (I´m using pinkdot´s version) and started it again.
    (iv) started Squezzeplayer on my tablet, switched to OrangeSqueeze and started a 24/94 song with the result that the player "Asus Nexus 7" stopped.

    Now I´m stucked again ;-)
    Any tip?

      Unfortunately, your NAS may not have enough CPU power to run SoX* in this way. If you want to confirm, temporarily install LMS on your PC and copy some of your hi-res music as well as the new custom-convert.conf to the appropriate places. Restart and try to play these files via your new LMS instance on your Nexus 7.

      *Are we sure the Synology distribution of LMS even has SoX support?

          You can check if a SoX binary is shipped with install they are all in the same folder , no I don't know where they reside on your NAS ( sorry , Google )

          However this may be the problem all along , if SoX is not supported on your synology model that's may be why it's broken in the first place .
          Just try LMS a real computer ,but don't yet add your custom.convert.conf . Maybe there is nothing wrong with the player .

            Worst case you can always do a "find / -name sox", but it will take a while...

              Well.. the Sox file is located in one of the subdirectories of my LmsRepack folder.

              Hmm...

                Ok, so you've got sox.exe but it may not be running. I know it's a bother but the best way for us to help is for you to install LMS on a PC, copy over some 16/44 and hi-res, and see if it works with your Nexus: without or with the earlier custom-convert.conf file.

                  I finally found some time to install LMS on my Win8 notebook.

                  I used the offical 7.7.5. version and after I set up everything I checked it with a 24/192 flac file and voilà ...it worked..played without any problems via my Nexus (and a custom-convert.conf file wasn´t even needed).

                  Am I right now that my NAS is the bottleneck?

                  Thanks so far for everybody´s help!!! Much, much appreciated.

                  Cheers,
                  M.

                    Don't ditch the NAS just run LMS on a PC and point it at the storage on the NAS. Tell LMS the storage path by UNC path eg \\NASIP\MusicFolder use the IP address rather than name - assuming your NAS has a static IP. IPs always work, names can fail. You can map the drive as well. Both the PC and NAS should be wired not wireless.
                    It should be straight forward.

                      You can have both LMS running without problem the player can switch between them as needed . So you can start the win8 computer when needed .

                      Or make down converted copies at a resolution that works for you (as this is what LMS has to do anyway).

                        Will do and go the notebook route for "backyard" activities :-)

                        Have a great sunny weekend.
