Reducing security risks from open source software

Asus' O!Play HDP-R1: connect your telly to your NAS

The O!Play may sound like a marital aid, but it's actually a compact set-top box that supports major video formats MPEG 1-4, H.264 and VC-1, along with Real Media, all in a wide array of container formats. Separate subtitle files are supported too, in four forms.

Standard photo and audio formats are included too - Ogg and Flac are both on the list - and all the content's pumped out through the O!Play's HDMI and composite-video ports, and RCA and optical digital audio feeds.

The box has an Ethernet port on the back for source network file stores - there's no wireless, though - and a combo USB 2.0/eSata port for directely connected storage. ®
