Just thought I would post that my Popcorn hour arrived today and I am very impressed at the ease of setup and how well it is streaming terrestrial TV as long as it is in AC3. Of course AAC is mute due to the codec issue!  Upgrade to the latest firmware was seamless too.

I have also managed to stream 720p movies even through my HTPC is wirelessly connected to the router and then the popcorn hour hardwired to the router. It choked a bit on 1080P tho !
