Hi

Before I put this on Trademe I thought I would see if GZ members were interested. I have a Popcorn Hour A100 media player for sale. It's in excellent condition - treated well!  Reason for sale - I have two and have now integrated all my viewing into my media room so this is now surplus to requirements.

Looking to get about $180 for it. If you're interested send me a PM.

Will come with the Popcorn Hour, power cable and adapter, remote with batteries, HDMI cable and cables for installing an internal HD.  Pickup in Wellington or I will ship at cost.

Works great with gbpvr and also www.swisscenter.co.uk.

For those who don't know about it here are some basic facts


 Popcorn Hour A-100
Popcorn Hour A-100 allows you to pull in digital video, audio and photos from various sources for your enjoyment on your HDTV or Home Theater setup.

You can stream or playback your digital media content from a variety of sources, such as your PC, NAS, digital camera, USB mass storage devices (Flash drive, HDD, DVD drive) ,  internal HDD* and even directly from the Internet via the Media Service Portal.

It also serves as a NAS and a BitTorrent peer-to-peer downloader** to eliminate the need to switch on a PC or other device for this purpose.

The Popcorn Hour A-100 supports the latest high bitrate video formats (MPEG2 MP@HL, H.264 HP@L4.1, VC-1 AP@L3 in TS of at least 40Mbps) to give you up to 1080p high-definition videos.

In recognition of advances in Internet TV, the A-100 supports peer-to-peer Internet TV streaming technology from SayaTV, as well as popular unicast internet TV such as Revision 3 and Mediafly via the Media Service Portal.

The A-100 firmware is upgradeable to support future media containers, codecs and features.
