Popcorn Hour A-300 trade

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I just got a A-300 and need to trade it for a A-210. I already have a A-100 and use myihome and want to contine to use myihome. I just found out the hard way that the A-300 does not support myihome. Anyone want to trade? I can send it back to popcornhour but there are no A-210's in stock and they charge a 15% restocking fee. Someone please help

That works for me. I thought the only difference in the a-200 and the a-210 was the case?

I sent mine back and they didn't charge me 15% restocking fee. But I did had some issue such as losing sound, unable to edit art, and it wouldn't play recently added movies even though I had scanned the folder. I had to rescan the whole drive.

Thanks. I think I am just going to send it back and get them to send me a A210 once they become available. From all of the reading I have done on the A300 it looks like a disaster launch. And why in the world would the not make it compatible with myihome and not say anything about it?

I got it because it has its own jukebox but its not 100% workable at least for me it wasn't. My wife had a hard time using it and it just plain made her so upset she let me order other media players to test them out. Ill be home in 2 hours to finish testing the AIOS and them ill start on the mede8er.

I got my A300 on 1/11/2012, and like it alot so far better than my C-200.
I have not used the NMJv2. I used Eversion. Like that too. I use NFS Manager on my imac to NFS shares to my A300. I didnt know myihome isnt compatable with the A300. Have you tried Llink?

Is anyone still interested in trading a a-200 or a-210 for my a-300. It has been used a total of about 30 minutes and I have the box and everything else with it.

Popcornhour is going to charge me $55 to ship it back and swap it for an a-210. I would rather trade it to a fellow AVS'er. Let me know if you are interested.
Thanks,
Ryan

I sent mine back for $9.99 via USPS, which included a tracking #.

That is not what they told me this morning. They want 15% plus cost for me to ship it back. I figured someone would want to upgrade their a-210 for free, right?

Well, I had many issues with my A-300, and I even opened a ticket with them, and I made numerous calls to them. PCH Tech acted like they didn't know what I was talking about and made it seems like it was my fault it wouldn't work.

I spent countless hours trying to make it work, and I even re-ripped my whole library to a different format and rename every file as they said to do, and I still was having issues. I had to rescanned the whole drive every time I added a new movie, which took like 2 hours or more due to my large media library. It lost sound, and the jukebox never worked right.

So, I got tired of it, and I read to them what the description of the A300 was supposed to from the box and their website. I told them the A300 did not do what it was supposed to do, and they agreed for me to send it back and got 100% refund.

I have an A-200 with very low mileage - it is mostly collecting dust... brother built a HTPC and hardly use it now... PM me if you are willing to swap for an A-300...

If you still have your 300, PM me. I have an A-200 with the newer fanless case. Works perfectly.
