  1. Out of curiosity, have at all attempted to install another OS on this? The reason I ask is I have this unit from Optus but have never used it except to power it up. I couldn't figure out how to network it with my NAS or if it was even possible.

    What would we be great something along the lines of XBMCubuntu or even just a Puppy distro. Or anthing!! Then it's useable! At 25w max power consumption it would make an awesome torrent box!

    1. That would be a great idea but the filesystem is encrypted and embedded on board :(

  2. Can the filesystem be re-flashed to install another OS
