Welcome to RTD1073, this site is related to information regarding tweaking, hacking and improving device based on the RTD1073 chipset from RealTek.
RTD1073 is a device chipset for HD Media Player, it contains a MIPS CPU and hardware decoding processor for audio and video.
A HD Media Player is usually used for playing media files such as AVI,MKV,MPG extracted from DVD, VCD, Bluray or download from the Internet.
Before these players are available, downloaded media files must be burn to a DVD, VCD before one can play it on the home TV or LCD TV,

Some RTD1073 media player device can also allow the user to download files from the Bittorrent with a Bittorrent software installed on the device.
This wiki site is delicated to distribute information regarding Media Player/Multimedia Drive Device in the hope to attract more hobbyist developers
to improve them. Since most device makers are in the hurry to develop software on these device, they fail to make the device complete and these
leave a lot of room for development or as a development toy for hobbyist hackers.
