Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Asus O!Play HDP-R1 HD Media Player (Accessory)
My first impression of this wasn't the best - tried playing back some WMV files without success. Then tried some mp4 files, which played but it wouldn't stop and then restart at the same place. It did however play some mkv files which were straight rips from DVDs (no transcoding) and also played DVDs ripped as complete iso images.
It turned out that the problem with playing back the mp4 files was due to the NAS I was streaming them from (a synology ds210j). An upgrade of the NAS firmware fixed this.
I've only tried the the playback using SD material but it looked good to me.
The menu system is a little bit clunky but perfectly useable, although the graphics look like something from the 90's.
As mentioned in other reviews, the remote is nice to hold - if you like holding useless plastic boxes. The sensitivity of the remote is exceptionally annoying. Factor in buying a 3rd party replacement if you are going to be using this box frequently.
