    Just got Popcorn Hour A110 after being impressed with all the "it can play everything" endorsements. But it fell down on one of this first files I tested.

    File is an .avi file which shows just a blank screen - I get the audio. File properties are - 720x480 - ffdshow video decoder - Frame rate 29fps - Data rate 357kps. This file plays on my PC using Window Media Player without problems.

    Is there any way to play this video on the PCH-A110.

    How are you trying to play it?
    Does it work using SMB?

    One thing you can try is to re boot your A110. A lot of the time if a file refuses to play once, it can bring down the whole system and only turning it off at the wall (or switch if you have one) and back on again will clear it.
    I doubt thats the issue but its one thing you can check.

    So far ive not come across any .avi's that wont play on my A100 but i know they are out there.
    I d not think there is anything you can do at the PCH end so you may need to re encode it or repair it.
