This is pretty much what I did - migrated from an Ubuntu PC that I
didn't want to have running 24/7 to a two-bay QNAP running LMS. Owing to
a bunch of issues around the BASH vulnerability and SSOTS no longer
being maintained, and the fact that the QNAP software updates sometimes
affected software such as LMS, I switched to a Pi3 as a server, with the
files on the QNAP. It works very well and was really easy to set up.
There's also a benefit to using something a bit more mainstream and
supported (piCorePlayer has a very active thread in these forums).
