Hi all. Curious to ask, is it uncommon for a NAS not to run 24/7?

Easier to understand if you ask whether it is common for NAS to run 24/7.

Mine is scheduled to be off daily at night when I sleep.

Hi all, I just got myself a DS213 recently but I am facing a problem.
After setting up all the folders & transferring of the files, I went to my TV to check if it is able to read those files.
I will have to wait for very long before the NAS will appear on the input listing.
Is there anything that I can do to improve that?

My initial thoughts was that I switch off the TV totally (from the main plug) & that it will have to reload everything. But I tried not switching it off & the problem still persist.

Oh btw the DS213 is having a discount at MW.

Thanks alot.

simi TV? wifi sync or what ? distance between tv, router and nas? how are they being connected?

probably your TV is the bottleneck.
or probably the tv wifi is the bottleneck
or even the cache in the tv is insufficient to store such things.


there are too many issues to render proper support here. Go look for your TV manufacturer ba

TV brand - LG
Connection type - WIFI
Distance - less than 5m

NAS & TV are connected via a wireless router.

When I stream videos to my TV via my desktop computer, the TV is able to detect my computer almost immediately after it gets connected to the network.
Hence I do not think that the TV or the TV's wifi-dongle that is causing the problem.

And the TV is able to detect PLEX media, from the NAS, upon connection but it is not able to detect the Shared Folder for the other medias.

Thanks for your reply

Check your permissions on the NAS. From troubleshoot, reset the permissions to "everyone" for all folders, then test as you tighten.

Not sure if PLEX is going to eat all resources of the NAS CPU since the 213 is an entry level model.

Perhaps disabling PLEX and enabling DLNA might be an alternative.

Which model of LG is the TV?

if you find it crude, you can always choose not to reply thereafter.

I was at work, thats why I cannot check my TV model.
And I am ignoring his crude remarks, since it is the best revenge to tards.
