Asus has launched an updated version of its O!Play media streaming device. You can hook the new O!Play HD2 up to your TV and plug in a USB flash drive, hard drive, or flash card to pump audio, video, or pictures out to your big screen. You can also connect to shared network drives over a home network.
What’s new is that the O!Play HD2 supports USB 3.0 as well as eSATA for super speedy connections.
We don’t have complete specs yet, so it’s not clear whether the O!Play HD2 supports wireless networking or if you’ll have to plug in an Ethernet cable to stream media over a home network.
I would love to see the offspring of this box and the Roku player!
Nothing heard from any of my members at https://minimodding.com yet.
Nothing yet on the ASUS Tiawain ftp site either.
But ASUS seems to be hitting a “new model every three months” output rate.
No idea myself how they will fair against tiny, full (net-top?) computer boxes
with special graphics accelerator cards.
But since ASUS makes both types of devices, they seem to be betting on
both sides of any shake-out in the market place.
