That seems to be only for the UPnP AV media server while streaming.

What does that translate to - the media server process is given priority when streaming?  Would that not be the point I raised earlier?

Yeah, Im not sure exactly how this works without a switch that supports QOS tagging like most home routers as our NAS does not have this function. But as for this device it seems it has added QOS for media streaming. I suppose a feature like this could be implemented on our NAS but I don't really see the benefit on a home network having traffic issues or being able to utilize a QOS tag. I will probably have to look into it more.

Just for the sake of clarity - where I see a potential benefit is not the normal tagged QoS traffic - but rather the possibility of having the unit dedicate more (or sufficient) resources to AV functionality so that the streaming does not falter if someone were to initiate a "multi gigabit" file transfer simultaneously
