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
