This device is not a router but a 32bit ARM A9 with an FPGA on the same Xilinx Zynq chip. For online video processing it features two HDMI ports. OpenWrt is in direct competition with the Xilinx PetaLinux. No need to learn much extra, just put OpenWrt on an SD and boot the device with it. This page eventuallly shall evolve to also feature an example how a bitstream created with Xilinx tools can be uploaded to the FPGA from within OpenWrt and communicated with.
OpenWrt boots and performs as expected. Except when it does not and then it is difficult to know whom to blame since there is no documentation. For instance, the temperature of the device is unclear how to determine. Also, the FPGA-typical features are not immediately obvious how to address, or the status of their implementation.

How to connect to the Serial Port of this specific device:
The Device is typically connected via a USB data cable - ensure you have one with all wires and not one of a cheap charger that only provides two.
