Hi all,

I want to replace my LaCie Networkspace2 NAS because I have startup problems with it in combination with my Encore.

When the NAS is switched off (via software) and goes on at the selected time, the Encore doesn't see the NAS. Each time I have to reboot the Encore to find the NAS for playing N.MUSIC. This is very fustrating.

Now I am looking for a NAS which can be set in a deep sleep mode and wakes up on LAN or at the selected time and that I do not have to reboot the Encore everytime.

My Encore and NAS do have a static IP-address.

Minimum is 1TB and I prefer 2 slots for a hdd. Also Twonky-serversoftware installed on it would be nice.

Any recommendations and experiences?

Thanks in advance! Beofan53/BeoHut

I use a synology DS 212J

It doesn't run twonky, but I am happy with it since more than 1 year.

Very easy to install, maintenance is easy, and always wake up when asked by the BS5 encore.

I have a QNAP219P that is always very reliable and runs Twonky.  I don't have a BS5 but it works well with several other devices.

I only know that B&O only recommends the Iomega NAS (now Lenovo) for the BM5. I dit it, but it does'n work very well....

I think you need to step careful here.

 

Some NAS support a complete off modus and some just shut down the drives.

 

i haven't seen anyone responding about the "deep sleep". Issue might be with the encore that it scans the network only on startup for potential devices.

 

You might want to test that with a computer before splurging on another NAS or you might wanna give up on the deep sleep and lve with hdd shut down only. It most-likely not worth the trouble replacing the lacie 

 

Cheers

I use a DS412+, which goes to deep sleep (in fact it's an "off" state), and no issues with the Encore.

I have used LaCie and WD NAS before, and although the Synology doesn't run Twonky, their media server software is way better than Twonky.

On an other thread, I explained that the Synology pushing music in Airplay mode is working better, even with Flac files, on a Beosound Essence, than using the DLNA mode!

And since saturday, I can access my whole movie collection on my Apple TV with a nice interface (full cover navigation), by running pled server and PlexConnect on the Synology. In this case, it's the NAS which has to transcode movies into a Apple TV compatible stream, so you need some good processing power on the NAS...

you are right; me too, when purchased BS5, provided to add a iomega NAS, 'cause the B&O reseller told me that only with that NAS, B&O gave assistance. These NAS revealed to be terrible: I did not get to see CD covers, lost all the data stored twice and I had a lot of problems, noone of these was fixed by B&O assistance. After one year of attempts, decided to put the iomega in the trash bin. Now I have a Qnap.

You have to direct the encore to it. Go to service menu and rescan for drives
