The Hauppauge MediaMVP-HD makes it easy to enjoy your favorite digital videos, music, and photos, at up to 1080p resolution, on your HDTV. The MediaMVP-HD plays digital content from a Windows PC or a USB drive. When connected to a PC, the MediaMVP-HD uses your existing local area network (wired) connection to play videos, music, and display digital pictures on your HDTV. In both cases, you can enjoy digital video recordings, photo slideshows, plus your MP3 music collection--all through the high-definition picture and superior sound of your home television. And for the ultimate, customized home media system network, you can connect up to 12 MediaMVP-HDs, each to a separate TV set, giving you practically unlimited play and record options.

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.
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.
