HDMI Multimedia NAS with USB port +old drives

I wanted some advice on an easy to use and set up NAS for home. I have a bunch of drives I want to give a once centralized home. I would love some HDMI ports, the ability to plug drives via USB to transfer, ability to use a folder as an iTunes server, and stream-ability. Please advise. Thank you.

In order to build a RAID on a NAS- all drives should be the same size. Als, it would be recommended to use NAS drives like WD RED or Seagate Ironwolf for better performance. If you have different size and different RPM drives, you can group drives with the same model number and build two RAID systems on a NAS. Or use them not RAIDed. Or even make every drive accessible under different drive letter.

Best selling NAS with HDMI port has been TS-453A (SPAN link) from Qnap. It will transcode even some simple 4K files. It can be used as Itunes server and you can plug USB drive and transfer some data.
