RE: Recommendations for a EVA8000 Media player replacement



Phil,

Seriously. I know nothing about the Popcorn Hour or the C200.
Is the Popcorn Hour available in Australia? Can I just order one from their
site and expect the units power supply to work on 240VAC and 50Hz.
It appears they come from China?

I also run MisterHouse and xAP/xPL. Does anybody know if I can run these on
the Popcorn Hour box?
Does it have a normal XP style of operating system?
Can I web browse with the Popcorn Box? I.e. to my MisterHouse server?


Regards,

Neil Wrightson.

No - you buy it as a Popcorn Hour C200 and then take the board out and
stick
it in a different case. :-D
