So, I've an old (but functional) popcorn hour A100. I'm looking to replace
it with a HTPC that'll run xbmc, and playback 720p matroska files.
The A100 runs it's own freaky version of linux. It's got a 300Mhz MIPS
processor, 96MB of RAM, and a top of the line Sigma Designs SMP8635 chip for
*very* high quality hardware 1080p playback. It has NFS/SMB etc. so would do
someone looking for a low power NAS with video playback. It has 100mbit
ethernet on-board, no wireless. I'll throw in a 300ish MB disk. You can
download a cross compiler & compile anything you want for the A100 - I've
compiled up rsyncd, python and a few other things.
Main reason I'm getting rid of it is that it doesn't run XBMC (which is
better than the Popcorn Hour UI, which though functional, isn't great).
If you have a HTPC that's overspecced for what you want, let me know. We
can do a swap + cash.
Oh, I've also got a Synology DS101j gathering dust also. It'd go well with
the popcorn hour (make the PH diskless and quite, streaming media off the
Synology. Both are PATA.
