This 800MHz clocked dual-core processor supports H.264 Muliview Coding (MVC), Blu-Ray 3D, 3D MKV and almost all 2D video formats. Due to the VXP Video Engine your older footage and images of low quality get polished and sent to your Full HD television in the highest possible quality. This way you can always enjoy high quality movies and series.
You can easily stream all your downloaded movies and series, but you can also mount a 3.5-inch hard drive on the inside of the player. There is a sliding mechanism located on the side of the player where you can easily mount your HDD in no-time.
The A-400 can even download movies for your via BitTorren or Usenet without the need of a computer. Operate the media player using the supplied remote control or by an app which is available for Android and iOS .
Besides subtitles the Popcorn Hour A-400i can also collect meta data from the internet. The A-400 does this through Networked Media Jukebox (NMJ). This jukebox feature allows you to browse through your digital movie collection based on movie posters and you get to see the information about the movie such as, plot, actors, year, genre and much more. You can even use your iPad as a second screen.
Watch the worldwide news, listen to internet radio and stay in touch with friends on twitter. You can watch your favorite YouTube videos or play some casual games with your family.

I am not quite sure about the negative reviews this player is getting.
I have had the Western Digital and the AC Ryan media players (which are both good players) & decided to try this one.
I must say it is by far a superior player.
Good solid build, nice to look at & the UI menus look great
I plugged it in (after installing the internal hard drive, bought separate) updated the firmware & good to go.
Its fast & smooth to scroll through.
The picture quality is a little sharper than the other media players I mentioned & full support for DTS HD Master audio.
All in all a great little player.
Apps still leave a lot to be desired though: I've ditched Plex (mostly my Plex server's fault, not the PCH-A400) and now just have shortcuts to key folders. Application support for other devices (including built in TV apps) is far better elsewhere, with the obvious omission being Amazon Prime.
Very interested to see the dual-Boot / hardware performance of the A-500 on Android as that feels like it could be the best of both worlds!!
I've sold a couple of my older PCH devices to friends when upgrading in the past but I would feel guilty taking any money off any of my friends for this so the A-400 is now in my loft. The A-210 remains in service in the bedroom as it's a far more capable and robust model. The main player in the living room is now an i3 Intel NUC running XBMC and that wipes the floor with this.
