Hauppauge MediaMVP

 

Great price-to-features ratio; clean, TV-based user interface; streams digital audio, Internet radio, video, and photos; ultrasimple setup.

No built-in wireless networking; lacks support for HD video, Rhapsody, and PlaysForSure WMA files; won't let you sort music files by artist, title, album, or genre; no Mac support.

For less than $100, you can't get a better digital media receiver than the Hauppauge MediaMVP.

"Digital Player for your TV using PC"

 

As for today Firmware Versions H have Optical Sound using Digital Coax output. Prior Firmware D1 thru E didn't have that feature.

S-Video for PQ

Analog Stereo, not bad but there is no Optical

Product Specifications

Hauppauge's MediaMVP is a low cost thin-client device which bridges the home PC with home TV and A/V equipment, via Ethernet networks. It takes high quality digital audio (MP3 music), digital video (MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 videos), digital pictures (JPEG and GIF digital pictures) and other multimedia content in the form of IP packet streams and renders the content onto video and audio equipment such as TV sets, TV monitors or plasma monitors, and home theater A/V systems. The MediaMVP connects to the home LAN via its built-in RJ-45 10/100 Mbps Ethernet network interface. When used in conjunction with a Hauppauge WinTV-PVR installed in a PC, a complete home TV and digital media distribution system can be made. Television is recorded on the home PC with the WinTV-PVR, and then watched on a TV set through the MediaMVP via the home LAN. The MediaMVP is located at the TV set, and decodes videos sent to the MediaMVP over the home LAN for viewing on the TV set. It also provides media decoding for MP3 music and JPEG/GIF digital pictures. The MediaMVP displays on the TV screen lists of media which can be played through the MediaMVP, plus menus for organizing the lists and for playing play lists. While playing music, the MediaMVP can also play a digital picture slide show. Driven by a powerful RISC CPU engine (>350 DMIPS) running the Linux operating system, and with dedicated special purpose multimedia hardware components, the MediaMVP is a full-blown network multi-media decoder device with superior computing and digital audio and video processing capacities.
