Trade you the extra space for the remote =)

WDTV Live ($120US) has 512MB RAM and 512MB Internal Drive ..

More RAM would be okay. Don't mind about the HD, just pop in an X gig USB drive...

Asus O!Play vs WD HD Live

how about a "lsmod" to see what drivers are loaded followed by a pastebin of dmesg or the system.log to see the boot messages.

Humm, interesting, not much in the loadable driver area. The rest have to be compiled into the kernel. dmesg seems very lean too but I'd expect this on an embedded device.

By the look of the files on the ASUS O!Play, it looks like it has wireless drivers .. I wonder if the above adapter work on ASUS as well just by pluggin into the device ?

Interesting as in Canada it's more like 50% more expensive. I don't know what video the WD is using, but they don't seem to support idx+sub subtitles which is odd (hope that is not true). The Asus has been fine for me except for the odd omission that you can't delete files from the attached hardware except via telnet. That is surely something they will fix.
Realtek is supposed to come out with a new SDK and I'd imagine a lot will start happening after that. I paid $110 delivered for the Asus (that's Canadian) and the cheapest I can get the WD Live is $150+tax+delivery. Not worth it. If the two were priced the same and I didn't care about subtitles then I'd probably go for the WD Live.
What I really want is an upgraded Apple TV
Must point out that the MVix Ultio is probably better than either the Asus or the WD Live if you need an internal drive and if you don't care about fan noise... (otherwise, disable the fan and use an external drive like the Asus and the WD Live or many other systems that don't have an internal drive).
Forgot: The WDTV Live doesn't seem to have volume control on its remote which is very odd.
