Hi all

Has anyone here seen this?

http://www.popcornhour.com/

Seems too good to be true from the initial list of specs but it seems it does infact do everything it says, and pretty well. With the device only costing 179 USD I'm tempted to order one and replace my overly complex MCE HTPC (which itself replaced my XBox 1 running XBMC).

Does anyone here have one, or has anyone here used one before?

It's not available to be bought, and certainly not at $179. To that price you have to add shipping (about $40), VAT and Duty (about £38 IIRC). There was a very limited batch of these sold in November (by way of a test batch, from what we can work out).

Another larger batch has just been shipped, one lot to the USA direct from China, to fulfil US orders and another batch, to a company called DivxPlayer in Holland, that seems to be acting as European distributor for the moment.

There was a buy-in through DivxPlayer organised by MPCCLUB but that is closed. No news on any more batches yet.

You can regsiter at the Popcornhour website but you'll wait and wait and wait.
