Setting up the O!Play Air
The ASUS O!Play Air has exactly the same software as the original O!Play making navigation a breeze. To filter your music, video, or photos, you can select one of the seven scrolling menus.
We first went over to the “Setup” Menu to set the aspect ratio and network settings. Nothing out of the ordinary here, since this functionality is identical to the Patriot Box Office Media Player that typifies a Realtek 1073-based media player.
Here is the icon for displaying Photos:
Here is the icon for playing Music:

The ASUS O!Player even lets you copy files between your sources. For instance, I can copy things from a USB drive to a network drive or from one attached hard drive to another.
Under the “On-Line Media” area, you can tune into a number of Internet TV, Radio, Weather, and Picture sites for free.
Here you can see that the internal Wi-Fi antenna is picking up - and has connected to - a very strong signal. This should bode well for our HD media tests later on. The Wired LAN is shown here connected as well.
Unfortunately, no YouTube or Netflix access here yet. On the upside, you can get to your Picassa and Flickr accounts. Many media players are now allowing YouTube and Netflix to be shown directly through the media players' interface, so one could expect this feature to come to the O!Player Air in the future.
