Installing MinimServer whilst Media Server is still present on Synology NAS?
Posted by: Judge on 13 January 2019
Can I install MinimServer as well still having Synology's Media Server on my Synology NAS (DS216j)? I wanted to try the former because reading through FAQs on here and content elsewhere, it seems liked because of better cataloguing/searching of the music library, although there were historic issues with it running after a DSM update or NAS sleep cycle (although I missed if those are fixed).
I am assuming that if I install MinimServer as well, all that will happen (dangerous..!?) is that the Naim app will present me with two server options, a Synology one and a MinimServer one. Is that right?
What I am unsure of as well is whether there will be any interaction/interference between the way one works whilst the other is present that means at best I won't be able to tell which I prefer, or creates a mess and I have no music at all!
Has anyone else tried this and what was the experience like?
