Just waiting till tomorrow to decide between buying from the US website or from o2media.es, who claim to have stock. If they have, will order from them even though it will work out a bit more expensive.

Been looking at buying an HDD to put in it and I am astonished, and appalled, at what has happened to HDD prices, all being blamed on the Thailand floods. The 2tb drive I bought for about £50 4 months ago is now on offer from the same reseller at over £150! Everywhere I look, drives are about 3 to 5 times more expensive than even some of the Google links suggest. Someone is obviously profiteering from the short supply. I doubt it actually costs any more to manufacture the components and assemble the drives so it's almost certainly just a result of the law of supply and demand.

Anyway, decided I can wait for the HDD and ordered the WD AV-GP WD30EURS 3tb drive from Amazon UK at £132 but with an estimated despatch date of 3 to 5 weeks. Hopefully, they won't cancel the order as it is unlikely to be discontinued that quick and they are usually very good at honouring their prices. I haven't seen this one specifically mentioned on the compatibility list for the A300 or A210 but it seems to meet the recommended criteria.

Fingers crossed!

If you dont want to wait that long for your HDD, I just got one of these from PC World

http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/wd-caviar-...8-pdt.html

They seem to have the odd one in local stores if you are lucky. You can reserve one but not order on line.

Its a bit hit and miss but worth a try - They had one where my folks live so got my dad go to collect and post onto meBig Grin

I ordered on 10 Nov with est shipping 18 Nov

Latest posting from sales shows 18 Nov batch will only include orders up to 8 Nov Undecided

Website still says est shipping 18 Nov - I've dropped Sales an email to let them know

I know it says 'Estimated', but still.....

Looks like the next batch to be despatched will be 2 dec and not 25 Nov

Hello there.
Because i want to buy that player , i have 1 question:
As it comes out of the box does it offer the option to browse via internet to specific sites like you tube,Picassa,e.t.c?
1 media player that i own now does it out of the box without installing third applications.
Thanks!

Hey,
just got one this morning. I struggled a little with installing a 3TB HDD.
I'm still discovering features and configuration. I'm new to Popcorn hour devices, was using a HMB Movie Palace before.
it seems i have a problem (seen on forums that others do too) when trying to play avi files hosted on a READYNV+ NAS.
i can play mkv, m2ts, ... but no avi. any future firmware update to fix this ?
regards

Hello there i am a candidate buyer of that product and i have a question.
Because i have an AV Amplifier 8 years old without HDMI Inputs,when i play BD-Iso Files Containing DOLBY TRUE HD sound my current media player (Xtreamer) sends simple 2CH PCM sound to my AV Amplifier via the optical output.
The A300 what does with that?
I wish it can sent simple Dolby Digital 3/2.1 to my AV Amplifier via the optical output.
Thanks and i am waiting your answers!

The next batch is only for orders made on Nov 10th and 11th. That's only two days. Why are they so slow with processing orders? Are they only making two units a day? At this rate I may not see my A-300 until the New Year.

Maybe they were effected by the flooding in Thailand also so they have slow stock for parts
