PCH C200

About a month ago I wrote about Eversion, a flash based YAMJ skin that was released for the PCH C-200 / A-200 / A-210. Well, it looks like PopBox owners can now join in on the fun as the PopApp has been released. I won’t go into too much detail about the PopBox right now […]

Syabas today has just released a new public firmware for their popular Popcornhour C-200 players. Generally a firmware update for the Popcornhour A-200/210 is released a few weeks afterwards. I will also be looking to update my C-200 and A-200 reviews, so be on the lookout in the coming weeks. Release notes are below. The […]

Last Year I documented a video jukebox for the Dune players called Zappiti. Overall I have been happy with Zappiti and use it frequently with my Dune BD Prime and Dune Smart D1. For my PCH C-200 and PCH A-200 I have been using the YAMJ + Aeon jukebox, which although I liked I much […]

If you have spent any time on the NetworkedMediaTank forum (or even TheGreenButton as Accident is a former Media Center MVP) odds are you have bumped into member Accident , even if by accident!

In the beginning of May I posted about new firmware updates that were coming to the Popcorn Hour C-200/A-200 that would hopefully fix some nagging issues I encountered when reviewing the players. Well, a few days ago the first beta of the new firmware was released for testing. As a beta tester I downloaded the […]

One of the biggest criticisms of the Popcorn Hour A-200(see my full review here) revolved around the design. The Popcorn Hour A-100, A-110, and C-200 (see my full review here) had all used an aluminum case and were fanless. This helped ensure that the devices ran quiet and cool, two very important things for any […]

Syabas has just released a new firmware update for the Popcorn Hour C-200 Media Player. Now normally I wouldn’t post about something like this. However, in the firmware update post an interesting note was posted: We are currently switching to a new Sigma SDK which should fix: 1.) Avatar BD issues and also issues with […]

I just received an email a few minutes ago regarding a partnership between Eyecon and Popcorn Hour(actually thought it was spam but just verified it is in fact legit). Here is an excerpt: “Eyecon is partnering with PCH to introduce EyeconTroller for Popcorn Hour media players. EyeconTroller provides mobile control of your personal media experience. […]

If you are a user of a networked media tank (nmt) such as the popular Popcorn Hour series you already know that the stock UI pretty much blows, giving you nothing more then a “windows exploreresque” experience. Yes, almost all your files will play back, but let’s face it, we want to impress everyone and […]
