Asus O!Play HDP-R1 Media Streamer

This a general purpose media streamer from asus. Please see the Asus website for more details. This isn't a mythfrontend yet, but you can serve up your files via cifs (Samba) and watch your recordings on this device.

Sample smb.conf file using share level security

        workgroup = WORKGROUP
        netbios name = MYTHTV
        server string = Samba Server Version %v
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 50
        security = share

   path = /export/data5/mythtv
   public = yes
   browseable = yes
   only guest = yes
   writable = yes
   printable = no

Creating pretty filenames

  1. Create a dir for sharing
  2. Remount your myth shares under dir above "mount --bind old_mount new_mount".
  3. Run the contrib/ --link script.
  4. If you are using storage groups, you need to tweak around the multiple mountpoint issue. I symlinked all the mpg files to a single dir, then pointed at that base.

Be sure that BOTH smb and nmb are enabled and running. If nmb is not running, your asus box won't discover the share.
