Hauppauge MediaMVP as a MD?
« on: October 15, 2007, 03:45:28 am »
I know that the mvp can work with MythTV.  What I haven't been able to find is whether LinuxMCE has the files necessary for this device to netboot and come up as a media director.  There are several posts over the last year or so but nothing confirming whether it works or not. I would like to use these low cost MD's for the spare bedrooms, garage, kitchen, etc.  I am not interested in high quality video or audio for these rooms.

Can anyone confirm whether support is built in for the mvp?  Anyone that has gotten it to work?

I have booted the mvp from Linuxmce using the instructions from the mvpmc site.
Things you should know.
The user interface is mvpmc not linuxmce. (Would be nice if someone could update the firmware to work with Linuxmce).
I have had limited success playing some videos via mnts.
I have been able to use the music client to play music from linuxmce's slimserver.
MythTv I had problems, may be related to mythtv passwords.
Check the MVPMC site for details on features and functionality. You will be basically be booting and reading media from the Linuxmce box, but the applications (user interface is in the firmware that is loaded on the mvp at boot time.

Good luck
