There are two problems to play the files directly, through a NAS or directly on the TV.

1) The files were already captured with Avid, so the files can only play through it.

2) My experience with 3.5" HDD SATA to USB adapters, which would allow me to play the files directly, has been the worst possible in the past. With the HDDs crashing shortly thereafter. To me it was related to some damage inflicted by the adapters, likely byt the power supplies they use. Will never risk that again, particularly with the HDDs where the project media is.

3) I will be assembling a non-RAID server, using Linux, to handle all my media. So what I could do is use that desktop and, using another SSD, to mount a system on it. The hardware would be the same, only the SSD would be replaced, and I have one I can use for that. booting as Linux. What do you think?

4) How would that go on once I have my full blown server, as mentioned?

OK, I think I had a brilliant idea.

Why not mount my present desktop with Linux and the server program, just using another SSD to boot from?

That would be very easy to do.
