I bought the Prodigy (same as this model just supports a full size HD) and it 'died' after 10 minutes - back it went. Guess I stick with playing 3D BD's and using my A110. frown.gif

I actually need two more media players for my son's and daughter's room. So, Im hopping to get lucky again and find a couple more PCHA210 for a good price. I cant believe people are still paying $200 or more for the PCHA210 when the PCHA300 is only $20 dollars more.

I can't remember how many times I've read this same exact complaint for this product. Return it, I've read too many horror stories about this company and their products/lack of service. Put a few more dollars with the money you get back and get a Mede8er, far better support and reputable company. If you don't care about 3D get the MED500X2 or MED450X2 which have the Realtek 1185 chipset, if you do get the MED1000X3D which has the 1186 chipset.

I'm interested in installing a Sidewinder 3 in a car, mostly for Airplay video capability via composite video out.
The principal Airplay use case is to mirror my iphone 5 or ipad screen, especially for pod/vodcast (while for musical videos I'll copy them directly in the xtreamer memory).

Has anyone tried if Airplay works properly AND if the UI is usable in composite? (Audi A4 MMI3G, 7" 800x480 display + rear seat monitors)?

Note: as I don't think the xtreamer has Wifi direct capability (to connect via wifi an iPhone without passing through a wireless router), I will use a little TP-Link MR3020 portable N router for in-car wifi.

Many thanks in advance

I'm in the market for one of these types of items, and I was looking at the Sidewinder 3 vs the Micca EP600.

I was wondering if anyone has experience with both and could comment on them and which they like better and why.

Basically I want to be able to stream media of all formats, in 3D with surround sound as well, from my PC to the media device. And I also want to be able to plug in a USB device if I want to run the files from USB. This will be streamed wired not wirelessly.
