If you want to try, you can download one of the latest images of OpenPLi for WeTek Play by loading the firmware onto an SD card. Bear in mind that official has just started so some features may not be implemented, and OpenPLi documentation specific to WeTek Play is basically inexistent. Support is available on the forums.

Does the OpenPLI offer support for other boxes that have built-in tuners like Geniatech ATV586 and upcoming ATV1950 with dual tuners?
Am particularly interested in ATSC OTA programs.
