    Nas app based version of NextPVR

    With the advent of 5.0 looming, i was wondering if there has been any consideration into installing NextPVR on a NAS device?

    QNAP already has a DVR solution which is quite limited. I like the performance and function of NPVR better and it makes more sense to have the drives local on the DVR instead of across a network. Qnap also has a PLEX app which works well for movies, but their interface is not suitable to me to store TV recorded programming. It might also make the platform easier to control if you know the hardware it will be working on. I'd even consider Synology if I knew a solution existed.

    thanks, Jake

    I haven't explicitly tried a NAS at this stage, but I have been testing it in a Docker container, which would be suitable for installing in NAS devices that support Docker.

    I haven't heard of Docker before. So I did a little research and QNAP does support it. I wonder if that is what PLEX and SiliconDust use to create their apps? Thanks sub for all your continued development.
