ACRyan PlayOn!HD (PV73100)
This page relates to the original PlayOn!. There is also an updated full HD-Audio version (PV73100P+) version covered here.

One of the first of the Realtek 1073 players and still one of the best specified. As usual for a Realtek, it will play a vast variety of formats very capably. Has more AV outputs than most others (digital coaxial audio, component video) and very useful side mounted USB and SD Card ports. The firmware updates and technical support offered by ACRyan have been amongst the best we've seen. The Play!On was the first to get a YAMJ (cover art) style browser and has an active forum where they accept feedback from users. The only drawback would be the lack of lossless HD-Audio support in the 'DD' Realtek chip, there is talk of a 'DD+' version coming soon..

ACRyan's firmware support, and the Play!On firmware itself, have been generally superior to the other Realteks. Combined with the very capable hardware, the ACRyan is among the best.

The 1073 chipset ACRyan players have been superceeded by the 2011 RTK 1055 / 1185 versions. Check them out here.

Better look here for latest "free" firmware. Realtek has abandoned the 1xx3 platform. These guys take it further than it ever was before: www.moservices.org

I have also recently purchased acryan Playon!HD player (this has come preinstalled with PV73100 (SDK3.X) r3582.

I need your guidance in following:

1) Can you suggest which is the best firmware to install, that give me the flexiblity to install more applications. (it could be mod/hacked firmware)

2) I would like to watch online contents like movies, series and video songs from site like youtube, megavideo, dailymotions and other free sites.

3)How to add any media streaing site I may find on internet

4) How to increase wireless transmission speed

5) All other things I can probably do with it (I want to take full advantage of its network, streaming features.

I am not a techie, so if you can explain it in same way as you have done above, it would be great.

I know about the official acryan forum, but steps there are not for beginners like me. Though I would like to have metafeeds, Shoutcast, Youtube HD, xspf & m3u playlists , PlayOn!HD InfoSite, Google Maps and TViXiE2Playon!HD.

Any other unofficial acryan community/forum?

The POHD definitly will not passthrough HD audio! It has been removed from the website! So take care and look for another device if you have an HD receiver and want to enjoy HD audio.
