Advice DS718+ or DS3018xs - Best Choice?

Postby solomalee » Mon Mar 12, 2018 1:59 pm

Hi all,

I'm looking to upgrade in the hope of seeing better performance from my DVBlink server. I see two choices in the Synology world (my preferred platform):

Synology DS718+ (Intel Celeron J3455, 2Gb RAM)
Synology DS3018xs (Intel Pentium D1508, 8Gb RAM)

If I'm going for more than two bays then I'll go for 6.

MY DS1010 almost copes with multi channel SAT>IP HD TV to multiple clients, but I see it slows down every time a new recording starts resulting in video and audio glitches. (Clients are KODI with the DVBlink PVR client)

Am I right in assuming either of these boxes will be more than enough for my needs without stuttering of output.

Tuner:Octopus NET (SATIP)
Server:Synology DS1010 DSM 5.2,DVBlink 6.0,Digiguide EPG 6.0
Client:RPI3 LibreElec 8.0.1, KODI 17.1, DVBlink addon

I guess that with the new server - TVMosaic the Synology DS718+ will be enough even for 4-6 simultaneous streams/recordings (depends on HD / SD channels )

Ok...so is this replacing DVblink?

I’m happy on DVBlink for the moment and don’t really want to start trying to integrate another new solution (I already took a look at some other products and found they were not really fully meeting my needs.

I’m not yet sure why I should be interested TV Mosaic. The link just sends me to a forum with a small number of posts...is there a product page with details somewhere too?
