Possible Popcorn Hour killer?
Xtreamer Prodigy

This device seems to have full 1080P 3D BD-ISO support through the now standard 1.4 HDMI port. Is there a new Popcorn Hour around the corner that can compete with this?

Mede8er 600X3D
Popcorn Hour C-200

xtreamer can't even compete with itself and have pissed off their customers so many times anything they have coming is vaporware to me.

If the xtreamer has a gigabit lan that is TRUE gigabit and not the fake-GB that the PCH is sporting them it might be a winner, for me at least.

if you really want to buy one go read about them on avs/mpcclub you will change your mind fast looking on there forums is pointless they ban anyone the second they say something bad about a product.

RE: Possible Popcorn Hour killer?
If Xtreamer has anything to offer you then this forum is certainly not the place for you.

You get what you pay for in media player land, cheap is not good. Realtek chips are not as good as Sigma for picture quality which is the number one factor for serious users.

As far as the Company they are now even in dispute with just about everyone including their couriers and their customers!

they have something called "sub-title on demand" - wonder what that means?

"It encapsulates future possibilities to boot the machine with android 2.2 (we will do so when the SDK provided to us by Realtek will be more stable)."

w00t!

It even has a "strong" 750 Mhz CPU!

September 15 release date - hah!

They really should get a native English speaker to write their copy. I am not one, but even I could do better.

RE: Possible Popcorn Hour killer?
Wow that company is still in business?

I thought with the backlash it received from it customers of promissing things it never brought to the table that they went out of business?


I think ill wait for the PCH C300, really looking forward to that HTPC Atom goodness.

PCH A-200 16GB USB -> HDMI -> Samsung LN46A650 | A200 -> Toslink -> Logitech Z-5500 (Harmony 700)

Eversion Whisper eskin + WHS V1 (25TB Q6600/4GB RAM ) -> Mediasonic HR82-SU3S2 (Backup)
