Great product, I have one at home, but the price has been lower in the past.
#2
very good, this one plays the hd matroska files. A limited number of players out there that can!
#3
i noticed these when they first came out but stock was very limited and some places were selling for £100+

It does, and the PQ is absoutely superb. Plus it supports DTS via an external AV amp. Great as part of a home cinema!!
#5
not bad, but does it support RMVB?

okay, so no support for RMVB, but with SRT files, do they have to hardcoded or can they be in the same Folder as the Film.

I think thats what it prefers.
#10
good find, heat added.

personally i would go with the popcorn hour device though... even with its 2x price.
#11
Shame no RJ45, otherwise I'd bag one
#12
Quidco + RAC discount too :thumbsup:
#13
And just to get the arguments started. . . Is the Popcorn Hour 110 worth the £100+ more than this ?
#14
oh dear, here we go ! haha

well this is enough for me plug in and go...i guess it depends what you want from it...

Yes.

Can't really see the excitement here as it's been this price at a few places for a while now e.g. http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B001ILFDCK/400002567-21/?m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE

As someone has already mentioned, the Popcorn Hour is a much better device. Albeit twice the price http://www.popcornhour.com/onlinestore/

It's just a pity the [US] exchange rate has gone against us as it's helped raise the price :(

I have the earlier A100 model which cost IIRC £129.
#17
I got my Popcorn Hour for £150 delivered and never looked back!...

Love it, especially now they have sorted "bookmarks" out! :)

I was looking yesterday and the cheapest I could find (from a none US dealer) was £210ish !

If you only want to watch TV eps downloaded from ng's in 720p is the WD really all you need ??

This thing looks interesting, and it has an ethernet port so can watch stuff off of the Server

doesnt do 1080p nor MKV?
#26
I'm lovin' the Popcorn Hour TBH, looks just what I wanted back in 2005!
#27
This device, with unofficial firmware *will* stream over a network. You'll need a USB ethernet adaptor of a certain type.

The box is essentially a Linux appliance with an HD decoding chip providing the video, so it can be hacked about quite a bit.

I'd been thinking of one for myself. If the MSI Wind I'm getting in the next few weeks can't cope with 720p MKVs it'll be between one of these and an XBOX 360....
#28
I dont know why people are saying it doesn't have an ethernet port or comparing it to the popcorn, its not meant to be a streamer.
I picked one of these up eariler from Cdiscount for £82.64 during they're discount hours. Its currently sitting at £88.98 delivered.

Will play from a usb stick or should you go and get a WD Passport drive to with it ??

Make that into a propper sentance and im sure someone will answer you :thumbsup:
#31
£10 cheaper at amazon, isn't it?
#32
I think the lack of R45 is a plus point. As someone pointed out last time, it's too easy to become a slave to the technology. Who the hell needs a server running these days? 500GB USB hardrives are dirt cheap.

Why not buy a NAS (network attached storage) drive/s (some enclosures support multiple drives) and plug that into it, that way you can easily use it for storing other things aside from media like backups etc. That way you get the best of both worlds :)

Some NAS boxes even support FTP/torrent clients :)

Yep. £79.99 on there and in stock too.

A USB stick will work fine. Basically any USB device that works as an external drive will work - USB stick, USB hard drive (doesn't have to be Western Digital), some MP3 players. It has two USB ports, one on the back and one on the side, so you can connect 2 devices at the same time and it'll catalogue the contents of both into a single library.

to translate, i think he means

can u use a usb pen drive or do you need to go buy a WD passport for it.
#36
Cold, a tenner cheaper at Amazon.
#37
If i had the money and did not allready have a xbox360 then this would be on my shopping list.

The limitations of the xbox or ps3 for that matter is the limitation of 4gb file size when playing converted mkv files in mp4 format, also other limitations regarding video bitrate and reference frames depending how the material has been encoded.

By all acounts this can handle any mkv out there at full 1080p without failing, i did note as regards to the popcorn a110 that it can only do h264/mkv at level 4.1 which could be a problem as there are a lot of encodes doing the rounds that are level 5.1.

Nice little media centre this, if it had wifi it would the the dogs dangley bits :thumbsup:

The 360 supports Apple's HFS+ file system, so you can get around the 4GB limit imposed by using FAT32.

I agree with you though. I already had a 360, but I bought one of these as well. It supports many more file types natively, it consumes far less electricity, it's totally silent, and it's quick and simple to use.
#39
Can anyone tell me if this will play my HD files through the composite video output until I get a HDTVplease?
