The MediaMVP-HD Digital Media Player from Hauppauge plays all recordings which can be made with a Hauppauge WinTV-PVR, WinTV-HVR or HD PVR. The video formats can be played by the MediaMVP-HD include MPEG-2 and H.264, both standard definition and high definition (up to 1080p). You can also play standard and high definition DivX and standard definition Windows Media files.
MediaMVP-HD is installed at your TV set and plays digital media (digital music, digital videos and digital pictures) from your PC or a USB thumb drive onto the TV set. MediaMVP-HD comes with a full function remote control, with FastSkip buttons and a complete set of video control buttons. And with the audio volume adjustments, you won't need your TV remote control just to adjust the audio.
When the digital content is on the PC, MediaMVP-HD connects to your PC over your home Ethernet (wired) network.
Lastly, MediaMVP-HD also has a USB port where you can plug in a USB thumb drive and play digital media. If you have an external USB hard drive, you might need to use a powered USB hub since the USB port on the MediaMVP-HD is designed for thumb drives.

Play WinTV and HD PVR Recordings on Your HD TV Set
MediaMVP-HD can play all recordings which can be made with a Hauppauge WinTV-PVR, WinTV-HVR or HD PVR. The video formats which can be played by the MediaMVP-HD include MPEG-2 and H.264, both standard definition and high definition (up to 1080p).

USB Thumb Drives Can be a Source for Media
In addition to connecting to a PC to play digital media, MediaMVP-HD also has a USB port where you can plug in a USB thumb drive and play digital media. If you have a external USB hard drive, you might need to use a powered USB hub since the USB port on the MediaMVP-HD is designed for thumb drives
Access PC Media with Shared Folders or Through uPnP
There are two ways the MediaMVP-HD can access media on a PC: you can set up shared folders on your PC, or you can use universal plug and play (called 'uPnP') to access media folders on your PC. MediaMVP-HD connects to local area networks via its built-in Ethernet 10/100Mbps connection. The PC where your media files are located needs to be on the same network node as the MediaMVP. In general, if you have the PC and the MediaMVPs connected to the same network hub, access point or router, this requirement is satisfied. Up to 12 MediaMVP-HDs can be connected on a network. This means you can have a MediaMVP connected to the TV in your bedroom, one to the TV in the living room, one in the den, etc. The only limitation is that all the MediaMVPs need to be on the same network segment as the PC is located
MediaMVP-HD's CPU engine (a Sigma 8655 processor) runs the Linux operating system, and has built-in multimedia hardware for decoding high definition MPEG-2 and H.264 videos, digital audio and digital pictures. The MediaMVP-HD application can be reloaded through its setup menu.
MediaMVP-HD contains a built-in uPnP client, where the server can be an uPnP server such as Windows media player from a Windows 7 PC. Some Windows XPs have third party uPnP servers installed and can be used to connect to the MediaMVP-HD. The PC can be used for normal tasks while acting as the uPnP media server.
MediaMVP-HD decodes full HD resolution NTSC and PAL encoded MPEG-2 or H.264 bit streams in real time, up to and including 1080p. Video formats supported include MPG, MPEG, MP4, M2TS, AVI, VOB and TS
