Just wanted to let the community know how this $180usd nas works with Emby 

I have owned it for approximately 4 days and installed Emby server.  According the QNAP product site this nas supports hardware transcoding of h264 files even though it has a Realtek processor not Intel.  I can confirm that indeed hardware transcoding is supported as well as being able to play back 4K HDR video files. 

Only downside I can find so far is that the Emby package is unavailable through the QNAP app store so has to be installed manually and the security center gave a warning about the package not being digitally signed

Hi @PaulJNodine, I'm also considering this one, but I'm a little bit confused on the transcoding, in your experience did it hardware transcode x265 (hevc) to eg 1080p x264, or didn't that work?

Thanks a lot

According to the product information hardware transcoding is for x264 files.  Under emby transcoding options is ARM V4L2 H.264 (AVC)
