ASUS O!Play media player targeting WD TV and Egreat M34A? - Page 15

post #421 of 434
Can someone tell me if this player will play 1080/60fps files from my Sanyo FH1 HD camcorder?

The ability to show PGS subtitles is one of the reasons I kept the O!Play and returned the WDTV Live as it does not support the PGS subtitles even though the WDTV Live supports Dolby TrueHD passthru.

It came as a surprise that not many media players on the market today support this. Some high-end ones, such as the PCH A-200/C-200 or Dune 3.0 Base/Prime had to work on the firmware to make the PGS subtitle work with standalone m2ts files not in the BDMV structure.

Thanks for your reply. I think this degree of subtitle support is a big plus. I have Popcorn Hour A-110 and it cannot play subtitle from a a single VOB file and also does not support any type of PGS title.

Had a simple question. Does this do upconversion of all types of files it can play or it just plays in native format.
post #424 of 434
Had a question that hopefully someone here can answer.

My Asus is hooked up to my PC's network and a couple of external Hard drives that stream fine.

Whats odd is when I download an AVI file that's added to one of the hard drives, the downloaded folder is recognized -- but not the file itself (says it's invalid).

I have to move the file OUT of the downloaded folder, to a different place on the hard drive, to get it to play. Then it shows up and plays fine, no matter where it's located!

Very strange...is there a setting I don't have configured properly? This never happened on my old Popcorn Hour, any new download would show up with no issue.

Second thing is go in to the Windows 7 Control Panel>Programs>Turn Windows features off or on and turn on the Windows Telnet Client.

Third set up passwords on the Windows 7 user accounts.

Create a shared folder on the Windows 7 computer, add everybody as allowed users and with read/write privileges
For example create a shared folder called Videos.

Open a telnet connection to the O!play type in Open 192.168.W.W (O!Play fixed IP address)

The username = root and there is no password

Open the run_tail file with vi text editor command

Enter vi /usr/local/etc/dvdplayer/script/run_tail

You should see:

The following message will show in the Telnet window,

#!/bin/sh

/sbin/modprobe ehci-hcd
/sbin/modprobe ohci-hcd
#modprobe ide-generic
#modprobe ide-disk
#sleep 2
#echo 1 > /sys/bus/usb/devices/usb1/bEnableHubOnBoard_woone


Down arrow to below the #echo 1 line and press the i key

Add these two lines where you need to put in the username and password for the Xs and Ys, the IP Zs are for the Windows 7 computers IP address. And Videos is the shared folder.

mkdir -p /tmp/ramfs/volumes/Videos
mount -t cifs -o username=XXXXXX,password=YYYYYY //192.168.Z.Z/Videos /tmp/ramfs/volumes/Videos


After you have entered the lines recheck them and recheck again once sure hit the ESC key, then enter :, Then enter wq

Close the Telnet Client.

The Windows Share should show up under Storage not Network but like a USB drive attached to the O!Play.

Hope this helps.

Here is the source for the above in case I forgot something or made a mistake.

Is there a way to map network shares to local directories on the latest firmware? run_tail file is now located in read-only filesystem under /etc/dvdplayer

I have had this ASUS O!PLAY HDP-R1 for a little while now
good player but when I first got it last last year, and connected it to the internet it had either you tube or a couple other similar sites where you could search for video clips and play them;in good quality as well
I just did the most recent firmware and connected it to the internet for the 1st time since I got it and they have removed those sites from the network connection. now all you get is weather,stocks, and useless internet tv channels where most of them don't even work and or are poor quality
is there any hack available to get those original sites back on the unit
I don't want to put in old firmware because that gets rid of some of the newer playback functions

When will this support hd audio passthrough?
post #428 of 434
Apple Mac to HDP-R1 networking help anyone?

Can some kind soul PLEASE detail how to network to an Apple Mac via the ethernet cable? Turning on Flie Sharing on the Mac gives 3 confusing options:
Share files and folders using AFP
Share files and folders using FTP
Share files and folders using SMB

I've tried all 3 in varying combinations and alone. Selecting SMB alone the Mac says "Windows users can access your computer at smb://192.168.15.2."

So I make sure those numbers are in the O!Play Network Setup under WiredLANSetup > FIX IP (MANUAL) due to the fact that DHCP IP(AUTO) sets those numbers instead as 192.168.15.3. (I did try using DHCP IP (AUTO) to no avail.)

So then I go to log on and try both the shortened all lower-case version of my user id that it insists on saving for the shortcut but that fails to log on. I also try the full user name that the Mac normally uses when asking for it and that also fails.

One complicating issue might be that I have NO password for this user name. I delibarately set it this way for ease of use on my Mac - which nobody else uses. Can this be an issue with the O!Play? Or is part of the rest of the setup wrong? Note: I previously had this set up somehow and it worked fine with no password. I mistakenly did a hard reset on the unit and thus that setup was erased. So I know that it works without a password - somehow.

Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks!

Can someone who owns the Asus OPlay please tell me if it will display PGS subtitles from mkv files??? My whole backup collection was created with makemkv with original blu ray subs included so to me, that's the most important feature. I know Popcorn Hour's C-200 latest firmware now supports it, but it's just too rich for my blood.

Thanks!

Hello, can you please tell me which is the most stable firmware for this player and the steps to update?
Thank you.

Alright folks. I'm ready to bring this thread back to life with a very important question. This is a function I have been searching and searching for since i got this unit (a couple years ago).
I want to be able to Access the hard drive i have plugged into the O!Play from my windows machine. I want to share the hard drive phsically plugged into the O!Play. This will allow me to play all my videos from a USB connection (without having to worry about streaming of any kind), and on off-hours be able to transfer my media TO this hard drive without having to disconnect it and plug it into my computer.
You will forever be in debt to me for being able to answer this questions, I'm not kidding.

Lets bring it back to life!! I really dont want to spring for a boxee box yet. lol.

I am pretty confused why you would want to do this, but I will give it a shot.

I do not think it is possible using stock firmware, but believe that it might be possible using some of the hacked firmware's out there that allow you to create a CIFS or SAMBA for you external drive. Unfortunately, my link to the asus forum where it was posted does not show that post anymore. Sure it is still out there somewhere.

Again, this does not seem to make much sense as your are going to be in fact "streaming" your movies across a USB connection then a network connection. Not sure how well that will play.

What you really need is an inexpensive NAS that will allow both your computer and O!Play to access movies on the hard drive across the network.

why doesn't this player recognize audio files like Flac, WAV, AAC
I have had this player for a while but only recently put audio files on a hard drive and when you check the folder, the files don't show up
it says in the specs that it will play FLAC, WAV, AAC
has anyone else notice this
