Enjoy Digital Movies on Your HDTV
From Hauppauge, the leader in bringing TV to your PC, the MediaMVP-HD Digital Media Player lets you take advantage of the high-quality image of your HDTV and enjoy your favorite digital videos in high definition. Your digital videos, music or pictures can be stored on a USB thumb drive or an external USB hard drive, or you can use your home network to link your PC to your HDTV.

Even better, you can record videos on your PC using Hauppauge's WinTV or HD-PVR recorders (sold separately), and play them on your TV through the MediaMVP-HD. In addition to supporting most video high-definition file formats, such as MPEG2 and H.264, the MediaMVP-HD supports all recordings made from any of Hauppauge's North American or European TV Tuners.

Listen to Digital Music on Your Home Speakers
With the MediaMVP-HD, you can connect to your home audio system through optical digital audio, and play MP3 song playlists--all through your high-quality home speakers. In addition, your digital photo (JPEG) slideshows will make a big impression using the high-definition picture and audio from your home system.

Easy On-Screen Navigation Using the Remote
With the included Hauppauge remote control, it's easy to navigate your digital media from your TV, including your selection of digital videos, or individual music titles. Volume adjustment is done with the Hauppauge remote control, so you only need one device for accessing and playing your digital media on your TV set. And our exclusive FastSkip allows you to quickly move through your videos. If you have multiple MediaMVP-HDs, you can stop the playback of a video on one MediaMVP-HD, and start up where you left off on another. This is great for watching videos in different rooms.

Connect Multiple MediaMVP-HDs on a Single Network
Customize your home theater system so you can listen to PC music on one TV while watching a digital movie on another. The MediaMVP-HD works with Ethernet (wired) networks, easily connecting through a network router or switch (sold separately). You can connect up to 12 wired MediaMVP-HDs on a single network, creating a home system with endless play options.

Easy Installation
To use the MediaMVP-HD as a connected device, simply install the MediaMVP-HD server application software on your PC and connect the device to your PC through a 10/100 RJ-45 Ethernet port on routers, hubs, or switches. The MediaMVP-HD has built in connections for audio/video to the HDTV set through the HDMI, Component, S-Video or composite A/V connectors and digital audio (SPDIF), providing high-quality entertainment in the comfort of your home.

For the price paid (less than $75), it's not half bad. I connected it to my LAN and HDTV, configured for DHCP, and was easily able to detect my Ubuntu Linux based Mediatomb server.

When I attempted playback of various media, I wasn't able to get sound over HDMI. I then tried component video (YPbPr) successfully. I went back to HDMI, lowered the bit rate for the sound, and had it up and running fine (including 720p .MKV playback).

From time-to-time the screen goes blank when you've been wandering around in the menus for too long and as of now, I have not been able to make use of the USB port (always reads folder empty no matter what's connected). I have a trouble ticket in with Hauppauge, will update with results.

Low price
Played every video format I threw at it
1080p HDMI Output
Decent WAF (Wife Approval Factor)
Instinctive remote control (could be better)
Intuitive on-screen menus
Easy network setup
Automatic video setup built into the software

Unit itself could look better
OSD needs polishing: speed, smoothness, fonts are big & blocky (can't really complain for the price)
Has to reboot after some setting changes
Screen goes blank every now and again while in the menu system
No automatic audio setup

Setup could have gone more smoothly. For the problem I had with sound over HDMI, there was nothing in the manual, on the website, or in any of the forums that gave me any insight on this problem. I literally stumbled onto the fix. The problem was likely due to the limitations of my HDTV, but the average consumer might not catch that. Although it's not important to my intended application, I'm still waiting on an answer for my USB port issue.

I've had a Hauppage HD PVR for about a year now, and I've been recording my HD TV programs (I have a library of TrueBlood, Lost and Heroes) from my Fios box and burning them onto a CD for playback on my Blu-ray player in my living room. But I've wanted to just simply play the recordings back to my HD TV in the living room instead of going through the "record/burn" steps.
So I picked up one of the MediaMVP-HD's. It basically did just what I wanted.
I hooked up the MVP up to my HD TV set in the living room (I used HDMI to connect to my Samsung "B" series LCD TV). I have an ethernet connection in my living room, so the connection for me was pretty simple. I then scanned my network and found both my PC where the HD PVR is connected and also my laptop computer. In about 5 minutes I was able to play the HD PVR recordings from my PC to the HD TV set.
I like the fast skip buttons (you hit 0 to 9 on the remote control to go to different spots in your recording) and I like being able to adjust the volume from the MVP remote control.
The video quality on my Samsung is incredible, I guess due to the HD PVR recordings but also (I assume) to the HDMI output on the MVP.
Wireless would be nice to have on the MVP, though I didn't need this on my TV set in the living room. I have another HD TV in the bedroom which does not have an ethernet cable, so I'd need wireless there.
Also, I liked the front panel USB port on the MVP, where I've been plugging in my digital pictures which I keep stored on my thumb drive.
In my opinion, if you have an HD PVR, you need to get a MVP so you can avoid burning blu-ray disks when you want to play your HD PVR recordings onto your HD TV set.

I bought this mostly to watch TV shows recorded to my Win7 PC using the Hauppauge 1213 WinTV-HVR-2250 PCI-E x1 Dual TV Tuner. My thinking was that, being the same brand, I could be assured of compatibility with the file format (TS, transport stream).

Well, it turns out that file format compatibility isn't very good, and that's the least of this unit's problems. In short, the hardware appears solid, but the software is genuinely terrible. (By the way, I was upgrading from an old Hauppauge MediaMVP Digital Media Receiver (Model 1000), so I thought I knew what I was in for. Wrong.)

Physical setup on the box itself was pretty easy. Just plug and go. Software and network setup was terrible, and following the instructions in the manual just plain did not work. The setup screens are poorly organized and confusing, even for someone like me who does tech for a living. I puttered around with it for quite a while before I could get it to see the network.

Setup on the computer was also a drag because I chased a bunch of wild geese until I read in the fine print that they had a utility on their web site which could do the configuration automatically. I sure would liked to have known that before I started. Even so, the utility added a bunch of default folders that I don't use, and wouldn't get rid of them even if I specifically set it up to do so. As a whole, the manual's description of the software setup process wasn't even close to what I ended up needing to do.

The unit has a physical power switch which is a major nuisance.
