Most of the tools you need for NAS are there in linux, notwithstanding the deduplication that you get in BSD/Freenas but you can always add that in if you need.

If space near the TV is a problem, you could get a very long HDMI cable and/or use DLNA.
Another option (adds cost) is one I'm considering adding in upstairs as one of Mme LeMarchand's girls is now a "boomerang babe" (ie back with us): Use Serviio Pro, which apparently has a webserver component and an Android TV stick or THESE look cool, too.

Have you considered something like a Dreambox? https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=dr...w=1231&bih=683
Satellite PVR / media centre / potentially a backup server. You could plug a external hard drive into it (or just use an internal depending on storage requirements), set up SMB sharing and backup to there. You forfil your requirements but also get the added benefits of the dreambox
