Be careful what you wish for, Slite. I have a popcornhour A-110. It's sitting on the shelf. Big problems. 1. It converts anamorphic widescreen to 4x3 letterbox. The response from popcornhour was "use your TV zoom to expand it." Many (most?) TV's don't have a zoom for HD format. 2. Doesn't handle all WAV files. Ones with title information don't play. No workaround. (I maintain my audio in WAV files to retain as much of the original audio information as possible. Hard drives are cheap nowadays...)

and 3. Build quality is poor. when I turned mine off, I always got a big POP in the audio receiver. Something is not grounded properly in the hardware. I would have turned it in for repair/replacement except 1 and 2 made me put it in the scrap heap.
