Popcorn Hour C-200
The Popcorn Hour C-200 was the first Media Player to use a Sigma 864x chipset (the 8643). It stands out by offering an optional internal Blu-Ray drive and full BD-ISO support. The C-200 offers great connectivity, including 2 HDD bays, and 5 USB ports (2 front mounted). Other unusual but appreciated features are an RF remote, front mounted LCD screen, and a mini-PCI expansion slot. The only criticism that could be levelled at the hardware is physical size. It is huge.
The C-200 firmware went through a tough birth but is now highly developed and capable. NMT third-party apps give you access to every software feature you could imagine.

I've had my C200 for over five years now. Since late 2009. It still performs great. So far the only issue I had was with the power supply. I replaced it in Summer 2014. although I don't use my C200 as much as I did in the old days since I mainly use my A400s for media playback now. But anytime I want to view a 2D BD ISO with full BD menus, I fire up my C200.

This site doesn’t give the real score for Popcorn players. For example, 2 players first in the range of 59 and 60 (Popcorn Hour PopBox & Popcorn Hour A-200) are suddenly upgraded to 45 and 46. Also with the other PCH players they are giving unreliable scores. Iboum has surely made a deal with the Popcorn management. 1 STAR FOR ALL POPCORN PLAYERS! ! !

I can't enter in my c200 from my pc with windows seven(64), I see it in my network but if I try to enter there is an error message "Windows: impossibile to access at \\pch-c200", If I try with a pc with XP there are no problems.

Latest firmware has broken TrueHD Dmix. Iboum please remove this feature from the matrix.

Don't rely on the specifications on this site as they are unreliable.

Read the full discussion with Rom on the PH-A200 page. Our specs are correct and are the most accurate representation of the facts you will find.
Support for the DTS-HD MA is partial on both the Popcorn Hour A-200 and C-200.

I repeat, they are incorrect, I have a C-200 and get DTS-HD MA and TrueHD from my C-200. Simply because HD audio is not supported in SOME containers does not mean it cannot do HD audio - which is what this site is implying.
April 11, 2010 - 20:42
The summary text states the correct complex position re. DTS-HD MA and the specs state 'partial'. We are entirely accurate.

Without paying $50 for the IR remote kit this is NOT harmony compatible!!

I canceled my order for c-200 after waiting for one month+ because of continues delays. Proved to be the right thing to do.

At the moment these are working: LG GGC-H20L, LG CH08LS
List of compatability is here:
