From the Manufacturer
With PopBox connected to your HDTV everything can go big screen!
You finally have an incredibly simple way to play ALL of your own stored movies, home videos, pictures and music on your HDTV home theater, PLUS with PopBox Internet TV Apps you can now easily access the Internet’s most popular TV shows, videos, movies, sports, music and games on any HDTV in the house.
Your Home Media Library—Now Playing on Your Big Screen HDTV
If you’ve got movies, home videos, pictures and music files saved on your home network hard drives, PopBox finds them and plays them back on your HDTV home theater system.
Watch Crystal Clear Movies, TV Shows, and Home Videos in High Definition
PopBox lets you watch your stored movies and TV shows (all of your Blu-rays and DVDs) in amazing clarity on your HDTV. To make it easy to browse through your movie and TV library, PopBox automatically accesses IMDb online to display a thumbnail of the movie or TV show instead of just a file name! And DVD menus and Blu-ray basic menus work just fine with the PopBox remote too.
- MPEG1/2/4 Elementary (M1V, M2V, M4V)
- MPEG1/2 PS (M2P, MPG, DAT, VOB)
- MPEG2 Transport Stream (TS, TP, TRP, M2T, M2TS, MTS)
- Matroska (MKV)
- MOV (H.264)
PopBox also automatically finds and categorizes Home Video files that you’ve taken with your high def or standard def video camera. Using an easy to navigate menu, you can now play videos for family and friends on your HDTV that you’ve stored on your computer, or even directly from your Flip or other digital camera by plugging into the USB port on the front of the PopBox.
PopBox automatically plays all the most popular file formats—so you don’t have to worry about anything except picking what movie, TV show, or home video clip you want to watch!
Enjoy Superb Audio Quality and Music
For amazing audio quality playback of your movies and music to either your HDTV or to your stereo receiver, PopBox supports Dolby Digital and DTS Master Audio through HDMI and SPDIF (optical audio). PopBox automatically finds and organizes your music so you can play it back on your home theater system and enjoy it throughout the house!
- MPEG audio (MP1, MP2, MP3, MPA)
Photos on Your Flat Screen
With PopBox it’s simple to present a slideshow on your HDTV—PopBox automatically finds and organizes your digital photo collection (jpg, gif, png, and bmp files) and beautifully resizes your pictures for display on your HDTV!
The Best Internet Apps—Now Playing on Your Big Screen HDTV
PopBox Apps bring to your HDTV an ever expanding lineup of the Internet’s most popular entertainment, sports, games, and social media content—including YouTube and Twitter.
PopBox Apps are like Apps for your cellphone—but they are designed to let you view more content, play more games and music, and access your favorite social networks directly on your HDTV. PopBox is adding more Apps everyday—see our website for the latest!
Easy to Setup and Operate
Just hook the PopBox up to your HDTV and Internet connection and it does the rest.
PopBox to your HDTV or Home Theater Receiver
You can use an HDMI cable (included) or Component Video cables to connect your PopBox to your HDTV. PopBox does not work with Standard Definition TVs. You can also use an Optical Audio cable to connect the PopBox to your Home Theater System.
PopBox to the Internet
You can connect the PopBox to your router and the Internet in one of two ways. By purchasing the PopBox Media Player and utilizing an Ethernet cable, or, if you prefer to have one less wired connection in your house, the PopBox Wireless Media Player comes with the PopBox Wireless Network USB adapter that automatically connects to your Wireless Home Network. If you purchase the PopBox Media Player and later decide you wish to go wireless, you can purchase the PopBox Wireless Network USB adapter separately.
Operating the PopBox
PopBox automatically connects to your Home Network and finds, categorizes, and organizes all of your movies, videos, music, and photos—PopBox Apps do the same for Internet content. The onscreen menus and remote control are a pleasure to use and make operating the PopBox a snap.
PopBox is standing by with Customer Support seven days a week if you have any trouble setting up or using your PopBox.
