Best Media player on market,
This review is from: Asus O!Play HD 1080P HDP-R1 Live Internet Media Streamer (Electronics)
This media player plays every file in can think of. Supports esata, usb and Lan connection. The firmware updates have increase file support, asus are produced several firmwares adding file support, thumbnail view, slideshow effects etc...
The source code is open source from asus website which will defiantly be modded soon to add further features. The Remote has large button for speed and a ergonomic shape which looks really nice. I have mine connected to my LCD via HDMI 1.3b lead with a great 1080P picture. surround sound support through optical SPDIF cable to amplifier or whatever.
Only problem is the audio through to TV work best a HDMI RAW on my TV. To change the audio output through setting take to long a button or quciker method is need in a new firmware.
Overall: this is by far the best media player on the market currently its a shame it doesn't have a internet (youtube) ability like some dvd players this would be a great feature
With the addition of some new features in the new firmware the AUSU O play has now got internet streams of many shoutcast and other radio stations. There has been some other unofficial modification of the firmware to add support for a portable DVD player connection via USB and weather news etc...
Still waiting on the addition of keyboard support and a internet browser this would be a great feature.
