Asus issued a minor firmware update for the O!Play HD Media Player today. Or rather, the  firmware update appeared on the Asus support page for a few hours and then disappeared. Update: It’s back online.

The good news is that it does offer a few more options for sorting your media, allowing you to sort audio files, for example, by date, folder, album, singer, genre, and recently played.

The bad news is that these options only work for physical media (hard drives, flash drives) plugged into the O!Play. There doesn’t appear to be an easy way to sort media stored on a shared network drive, which means you still have to browse for a folder and scroll through a list of files. Speaking of scrolling, there’s no speed adjustment yet, which means that if you have a few hundred files to scroll through, you’d best be prepared to sit there for a while.

You can read more about the update here.

  1. There where at least two updates posted, 1.10 and 1.11

    And reports on the Asus’s O!Play product forum that the *PAL
    versions where bricking the machine. A big OOPS for Asus.

    1. The revision 1.10 is no longer linked to on the product support download page.
      But it is still on the ftp server, just in case you need to brick your machine. 😉
