QNAP NAS & Plex Media Server

I'm considering installing Plex Media Server on my QNAP NAS box which contains the movies, and purchasing the Roku Streaming Stick+. The Roku stick I want to plug into my Denon AVR instead of the TV.

What I would like to know (1) if it is possible, and (2) how to set it all up.

Thanks in advance.

Re: QNAP NAS & Plex Media Server

Yes, Plex has a Roku channel that works well with a Plex server. How to install on a QNAP NAS is a question you can probably find an answer for on the Plex or QNAP forums. It really has nothing to do with Roku. I did a quick web search and received many pages of sites that offer install directions.

Thanks!

Re the setup, what I really meant and should have asked is how to get Plex to communicate with the Roku.

After you install the Plex channel on your Roku, when you start it up it provides a link code. You log into your Plex account on a computer and enter the code. you can then access any Plex server listed in your account. Even if you're traveling and connected to a hotel network, you can access your Plex server if you've configured your router correctly. Again, this isn't the best forum for that support.
