If you own a Synology NAS (network attached storage) box, then life just got a lot better for you. Why? Because the company just released a pair of apps for your Android device that will let you control/access certain aspects of your NAS unit.
First off, we have DS Video. Just like it sounds, this lets you stream any of the video content stored on your NAS directly to your Android device. It automatically sorts the videos into categories: movies, tv shows, home videos, and recorded programs. And if you have a DTV dongle on your NAS, you can even remotely manage the recording schedule.
