Hi!

1) you will need a hub as only one of the micro usb slots transfers information and the other one is only power.
2)I am pretty sure you at least want a pi 3 the 0 is weaker and I have watched youtube on it at 360p and I cringe to think of even trying it on ONE tv with a zero.

Maxed the overclock of my RPiZ to match RPiZW, attached a WiFi dongle, installed Kodi and watched videos at the connected TV monitor. Files are accessed form NAS

720p videos plays smoothly in Kodi

Can you share the link to the OMV for RPiZ? As far as I know, the maker/publisher of OMV system does not like RPi's specially the BCM2835 versions
