ReadyNAS Install - Is it Possible?

I am currently upgrading from a tower PC "server" to a Netgear ReadyNAS 3138. The PC has Windows Home Server 2011 installed, along with Serviio and StableBit's Drive Pool. It has a 4TB, and 3 2TB NAS HDDs in it pooled as one drive. I am also a 'pro' owner of Serviio. For the actual NAS, I have 1 10TB drive, and after I transfer the data from my "server" to the NAS, I will be putting in the 4TB, and 2 of the 2TB drives into the NAS (yes, they are supported) - this, so they can all be pooled together as one massive drive.

I would rather not install PLEX because 1- I already own Serviio, and 2- I don't want to "subscribe" to PLEX to hear music or watch my media from a mobile device (Serviio App is free with ads, but I bought that too).

Will there be any support for the Netgear ReadyNAS infrastructure by way of installer file, OR is there a way to manipulate current installers for either Windows or other NAS devices to work on the ReadyNAS?

Re: ReadyNAS Install - Is it Possible?

I looked up the specs on the ReadyNAS, and it should have enough processing power for transcoding. The problem I would expect is the OS. It looks like they are using a modified version of Linux. It's possible that one of the other Linux-based NAS setups might work, such as the Synology or QNAP versions. But I don't have any idea what it takes to modify the Linux version of Serviio to work with a NAS device. Perhaps patters can assist, as he's the one that maintains the Synology version. The Serviio developer himself doesn't build the NAS versions to my knowledge.
