I also notice that they change the A-300 to The Perfect Networked Media Jukebox, and left the C-200 the The Ultimate Networked Media Jukebox.

I'm looking forward to getting it. Perfect timing, I'm closing up the summer house and moving back to the city on Thursday for the winter, so I'll have lots of time to play with it.

Has anyone had it show up on thier charge yet? Just checked mine and it hasn't.

More money, more supply, etc. I bet they made a ton more A-300s then they did the C-200 at launch. The C-200 also had way more parts, such as the LCD screen.

My friend & I's credit cards are still not charged and we both ordered 15 minutes after it launched. Google checkout says it was charged, but there isn't even a hold on ours. Should be normal. Werner said they should still be shipping out on the 28th, so everyone should be getting one between November 2nd and November 4th if the estimated shipping time is correct.

We all were charged according to google checkout, but does your charge actually shows up on your credit card statement? I saw $236 get put on hold after I placed my order, but it disappeared. I was supposely charged on the 24th.

I think it's normal, they were just verifying the funds were there but won't actually charge us until it ships.

EDIT: Speak of the devil, my credit card just had the funds taken out this morning.

My charge shows the transaction date of 10/18 and post date of 10/18. But it actually showed up on the charge today.

Hello Guys,

Many thanks for all the information here, a big thank you to Werner !

I received my A300 yesterday, as I'm coming from a XboX1 + XBMC platform it took me some time in order to get the A300 working properly.
Now I have a question:
In order to scan a network share to fill NMT it sounds like it require Read and Write permissions. Why Write permission is required ? is there something written on the network share while scanning? Can't we imagine scanning a ReadOnly share?

It stores art and stuff in the directories. Skin has the ability to delete movies too. Watched/unwatched I assume also need write permission.

Used to be DHL and yes you should get a tracking number, if you used google checkout it is normally there that you find it.

Anyone else with this problem?
Ordered a-300 on 18th via google checkout, card was charged 167 GBP on 24th but there is another charge pending from 18th for 163 GBP on my account. I've tried to cancel the second amount but my bank can't do anything until the charge has gone through (they don't know who the pending charge is from yet). So anyway i've emailed popcornhour, waiting for reply - wierd.

Anyone else?

Thanks

I talked to PCH yesterday because I thought my expiration date on my card is wrong and they told me they have nothing to do with charge and they don't even see the information. So you may be better off by contacting Google.

Werner,

Just looking at the specs on the popcornhour homepage for the A-300, PGS subtitles are not supported, or just an oversight?

Quote:Subtitle Formats: Opensubtitle support, SRT, MicroDVD SUB, SSA, SUB/IDX

Cheers,
Damian
