SYVIO-200 HD Player / Media Streamer


syvio 200

Like what the Popcorn Hour Media Tank offers, but hate the name and the enclosure? Have a look at this knock-off called the SYVIO-200 HD Player (MSRP $200) that essentially offers the same features, firmware, and internal components as the Popcorn Hour A-100. However, unlike the Popcorn Hour A-100, this model has the updated HDMI v1.3 spec found in the latest A-110 model. No U.S. distributors have been announced, but CMI is offering up open invitations to interested parties. [via]

    Ummm… Is it just me or does the inclusion of ‘A-100′ instead of ‘Syvio-200′ in the later few bullet points indicate… let’s say… a direct copy of Popcorn Hour’s website?

    It’s hard to figure what these guys might do right considering that they can’t even write their own feature copy.
