ASUS O!Play HDP-R1 (also known as ASUS O!Play HDP-R2A)
Early Realtek 1073 based player from Asus. Has the the usual Realtek impressive format support and performance and, despite the low price, the chipset used is the DTS downmix capable 1073DD. It is almost unique among the cheaper Media Players in having an eSATA port. Unusually, Wi-Fi is not even an option.

Firmware updates have come regularly with all the key new features having been incorporated (HD interface, BD-ISO Lite, internet radio..), albeit usually coming a few weeks later than the best supported Realtek players. The Asus O!Play was and is a very capable Media Player.

I have recently purchased the Asus O!Play purely for music listening through my stereo system and really liked the Random Music play feature in the remote. But when I am connecting my 160GB WD external HD and trying to use the random music button, it is not working. I am not able to play music randomly :-(
Any solution to this problem? I need this feature as I dont want to connect my TV to this player and want to use it as a random music player.

I bought that mediaplayer O!Play HDP41 PAL firmware ver. 1.24P in Portugal . But I Live in Brazil I updated to 1.29P. My question is. Is it possible changing TV system from PAL to NTSC by updating the firmware? If it“s possible? how? Because I tried to upodating using NTSC file but the device O!Play HDP_R1 reported that invalid. N

Just wonder how I can check the version of the chipset used in the player Asus O!Play HDP-R1 (Realtek 1073DD)? Other thing is the Audio from S/PDIF TOSLink for 'S/PDIF raw' setting is errored on my 5.1 audio player when playing a video file with DTS 5.1. Is this normal, how to fix it? If I change the setting to 'S/PDIF multi channel', my audio play would play the audio in a stereo 2 channels. Please reply. Thanks!

It had 4 iboum stars couple of weeks ago now it's 3. So what happened?

New DD+ Realtek players have arrived. This step forward in specification has led to a minor re-rating. Sometime soon only DD+ players will get 4* or higher. We will write something clarifying how the ranking works hopefully in the coming week.

Does this player now support Blu Ray ISO menus? I see that a firmware release come out in Feb with the below enhancements
1. Add BD iso navigation and subtitle identification
2. Add BD/DVD direct play by folder
3. Add hue and saturation tuning in video setup menu
4. Add Brazil language support
5. Add power saving function in system setup menu
6. Add My shortcut edit function

No, there is no menu support for BD, ISO or the BDMV folder structure.

What they added was to be able to play the movie from the top directory level. In the past, one had to navigate down to select a .m2ts file.

It's a great player at this price range (<$100). It would be fantastic if it could passthru Dolby TrueHD and DTS-MA with future firmware updates.

As for the true BD menus, the PCH A-200 can show some sort of "light" menu while the PCH C-200, the Dune Base and the Dune Prime can do the full menu. All are equipped with the latest Sigma chip, 8642/8643 and cost $100 to $300 more.

Thanks for the reply, I was holding out for the popbox or dlink boxee, but i'm getting impatient, was looking for something for my kids room, BD support is not that important for this purpose, but I might take the plunge. My WHS is running out of space, all my videos are duplicate, Stright VOB rips for the PS3 and ISO for my next gadget, I ether need a new HD, or a new movie player so I can delete the VOB rips lol.

Is there any chance it will get torrent client firmware update like CinemaTube in near future?

Unlikely. Don't think asus want to associate with torrents.

The ASUS O!Play supports the PGS (full Blu-ray mode) subtitle which is missing completely from the top-rated WDTV Live.

Currently, I have both the ASUS O!Play and the WDTV Live. The WDTV Live supports the Dolby TrueHD pass through which is missing from the O!Play.

The WDTV Live is miserable with the Windows network shares with shares appearing and disappearing at random. The O!Play has been very stable in this area.

When streaming high bit rate m2ts or Blu-ray ISO files, both players can stutter since the 100Mps ethernet is not fast enough. Sometimes, even the USB2 interface on those players is not fast enough. The eSATA port included with the O!Play has so far worked perfectly without any stutters.

Neither player is perfect. But in the end, I will return the WDTV Live and keep the O!Play for the PGS subtitle support, more robust network performance and the eSATA port interface.

Try sharing your folder using the "Everyone" option (I recommend making it read-only, just in case). Then, on the O!Play, use "Everyone" (without quotes) for username and anything you want for password.

Works in Vista, probably will work in W7 as well...

October 05, 2009 - 11:04

Yeah I'd seen that fix. Problem is I have no idea how to use telnet..
