Old Popcorn Hour A-100.... Looking for suggestions!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I have one of the original Popcorn hour boxes the A-100. It still works decent but looking to upgrade and am floored with all the choices.

Here is my wish list for a new box:
- would like to keep it to $100 or under (might go about $150)
- all i do is stream media from my server or my dlna server (Mezzmo) - these files are mostly 720p/1080p mkv files
- something that can play the media files without lag or sync issues via a hard wired cable
- something to play music files over network.

Doesn't seem like much. Not all that interested in Netflix, Hulu, etc. Just want to stream natively (no transcoding) from my server to my TV. I see that there are a few Android type boxes that interest me but if you guys can throw out some recommendations I would love to hear em.

Thanks!

Usually media players aren't that good with music. Furthermore, for $100 to $150 you are limited to a few media players. Pivos AIOS / XIOS (android), WDTV2, you can give Micca a try, I personally don't recommend it. The Mede8er MED600X3D is $190.00. Or you can buy a used PCH-A210.
