    NAS drives with LMS built in?

    Is there a list of NAS drives anywhere that have LMS support built in?

    Any recommendations? Would prefer fanless / silent, at least 2TB.

    My recommendation would be a Raspberry Pi server and keep your current NAS for music storage.

    There are unofficial packages for both Qnap & Synolgy and for a NAS that runs docker there are numerous docker images.
    However I concur with the above. The best approach is to use your NAS as a NAS coupled with a Raspberry Pi as LMS server. The combination is pretty much future proof whereas the Qnap/Synolgy packages could cease to be supported at any time.

    Thanks. My son has a Raspberry Pi 2 he never uses, maybe I could purloin that. What's a good 2TB drive to attach to that? And what do you run on your pi - piCore? Would be looking to using it for Plex server too maybe.

    Raspbian if you want to run both LMS and Plex. Pi2 may not quite be up to the task but Pi3 definitely would be.

    I thought you already had a NAS. If so you don't need another HDD.

    Yeah it's a NAS but an old one, with a noisy fan. Hoping to go fanless.
