Attention Asus O!Play HDP-R1 Owners


Recently, after searching for a media player, I finally bought the HDP-R1 ...The reason being, the mini is now available around 4.2k ..the R1 I got for ~ 4.5 k...

The big advantage of the R1 is the network capability ..To add new life into the R1, I have flashed it with new custom firmware which has given it youtube, Opera and ability to add tons of IPTV channels ...Also, for the more geeky folks, ASUS has released the full source for the software..It is a stripped down linux distro .SO you could compile the kernel and also modules for USB wifi adapters ..

I used the HD2 firmware from this site ..
amp_r8

The procedure itself is very simple ...First flash to get to bootcode 23 ..Then flash the amp_r8 firmware ..I first tried the playonHD skin ..It was laggy and youtube didnt work..So switched to HD2 skin and youtube works ...and skin is faster.

For other IPTV channels, I used this post
Updating IPTV Channels

I didnt need to update my bootcode but if u need to, heres how
Updating bootcode

So folks, get the max from your R1 and convert your old TVs to "Smart" TVs ..

Thanks stereorule,

By saying "smart" Tv do you mean you get android like Apps on your tv..

Can you post in more details about you tube procedure?

Can we use R1 for torrent downloads?

Appreciate your efforts.

The details of installation are in the links that I hv already posted .

If you are thinking that you can play angry birds on ur TV, forget it ...
What i hv running is
1) Youtube
2) IPTV channels
3) Internet Radio
4) A browser (Opera) ..Trying to figure out how to browse ..
5) Weather App (think its yahoo) ...

So what are we missing ? Maybe FB ?

6) Almost forgot ...There is also a bittorrent client ....transmission...
7) you can also mount samba shares ...
8) you can play upnp media

lots more .....I'm not fully using all these features ..

Re: Attention Asus O!Play HDP-R1 Owners

since your port reading all stuff from link provided, few things are new and few are doubtful,

1. need to check the code 17 or more
2. i have samsung LCD so, PAL or NTSC methos to follow ?
3. in case something goes wrong can we come back to native FW by hard pressing the reset button..

While reading came to know about lot of things

using wireless mouse for youtube/browsing
force subtitles
all new faster GUI (thumbnails etc)

let see !

Thanks Though !!

I bought Asus Mini Air for 8.5k on snapdeal. Got delivered in a couple of days. Works great.
