Install KODI v.19 Matrix on your QNAP NAS
Buying a NAS Drive for use as a Kodi Media Centre is pretty common these days and something that alot of people have done in the past to huge success. With access to your own privately owned multimedia, the ability to share that media with friends and family, access Kodi TV channels and enjoy all the metadata background images, reviews and information that are included to dress up your movies and boxsets beautifully – the appeal is pretty obvious. However many users also like the option to access their Kodi Media Server locally over HDMI, i.e. connecting a TV to the HDMI port of their NAS and then accessing the Kodi media centre with all it’s graphical flair and design (as opposed to streaming from the NAS to an Amazon FireStick or Android TV Box with Kodi installed) with near-zero latency, which is hugely beneficial for MASSIVE 4K H.264 high bitrate media that is just so big to stream over the network, but HDMI can handle immediately. Till recently, the very best way of having HDMI access to your Kodi Media Server was using the QNAP HD Station application and many of the QNAP HDMI enabled NAS. However, Kodi has been missing from the QNAP app library for a few years and this has been a real area of disappointment for many users. This is especially frustrating for some, now that Kodi has arrived in version 19 (codenamed Matrix).
