    Have you tried installing Plex Media Server on your PC and Plex Player (from the LG app store)? This way you can stream directly from your computer to to your TV.

    I can stream from my NAS Drive to the LG, would using Plex improve the situation?

    Possibly, you may even find that there is a version of Plex specific to your NAS drive.
    Before I moved house, I had all my media files on my dual Xeon workstation that acted as a Plex server for everyone in the house, with Plex installed on all their various devices. Never had any problems. Nowadays I have no need for this so the drive is in a high end Android box connected directly to the TV and I use Kodi.

    I have looked at installing Plex on my WD MyCloud NAS, but there are loads of different versions of Plex for WD and I couldn't see one that sounded like it matched mine.

    Is there not an interface (on the WD) you can access via your PC, that shows you any available software (hopefully including the specific version of Plex) you can use?

    My Cloud Home?

    Hi,
    Thanks for the info, but mine is a fairly old single bay WD NAS and I found a page on their web site that says I can't install third party stuff on my Drive.

    Looks like I'm stuck on that one.

    Regards,

    Paul

    Check out this thread No apps allowed on the community forums for WD My Cloud. Depending on your version there seems to ba a workaround

    WOW! that looks complicated, I'd be terrified of "Bricking" my Drive, I think I'll give it miss, but many thanks for finding it for me.
