Synology DS118, DS218, DS218Play, DS418j and DS418 model advisory (RealTek CPU)
To all considering the purchase of, or already own, a DS118, DS218play, a DS418 (Realtek RTD1296 CPU) or the DS418j (Realtek RTD1293) NAS:
A. There is currently no support for this model due to the processor. It is an ARMv8 derivative without ARMv7 compatibility mode. If it were a full ARMv8, with ARMv7 compatibility mode, limited support would be possible.
B. Engineering is researching support for this model but be advised:
a) Compilers must be obtained and verified.
b) Software must be ported and verified
c) Performance must be benchmarked to verify the unit meets the minimum Passmark rating required to run Plex Media Server.
This having been said, There is no promise of support nor research completion ETA at this time
