The package consisted of:
- Quick Start Guide
- Composite A/V Cable
- HDMI Cable
- Power Supply (with two heads – two pin round or three prong squared)
- Optical CD-ROM
- O!Play Mini Plus
Pictured above you see the USB port, SD Card slot, a lighted power LED and the infra-red remote sensor just below the Asus logo.
At the rear of the unit you find the power socket, ethernet port, combo USB & external SATA port, HDMI, AV (Composite and Left/Right Audio) and the SPDIF Optical audio port.
There’s not much to tell with the cabling. Plug the power in, LAN cable and HDMI cable. Use the remote, which requires 2-AAA batteries, to switch on the Mini Plus. The ASUS logo will appear on screen for a short time after which a seven item circular menu that you can navigate using the remote.
I like my connectivity to be physically wired so it was an easy setup – plug in the included HDMI, power and Ethernet network cable. The inclusion of an HDMI cable is a nice touch for you not having to think about added cost to getting the device installed.
