    Looking to buy a NAS based on two scenarios

    LG OLED compatibility with Asustor NAS?

    Hi, apologies in advance if this instead belongs in the networking category. I have an LG OLED55E7P. I'm looking at the ASUSTOR AS6302T that has HDMI 2.0 for 4k playback, which is EXACTLY what I need it for. My question is: would the LG be able to read media files stored on the NAS?
