    [​IMG]

    Model 10000

    wired 10/100MB
    wired/wireless 10/100MB 802.11g 54MB

    What it can to for you from your desktop or laptop:

    MediaMVP brings your PC based digital media to your TV set.
    Using your home Ethernet network (wired), you can watch movies and digital pictures (from a digital camera) or listen to digital music (MP3) on your TV set.

    Access digital music, videos or pictures (or Internet radio stations**) from your TV set, over your home network.
    Uses 10Mbit or 100Mbit Ethernet, for the best network performance with any type of digital media. Plays DVD quality videos on your TV set over an Ethernet LAN!
    Composite and S-Video outputs for the best video quality on TV sets, plus stereo audio output to TV sets or home theater systems.
    Watch digital camera pictures (JPEG or GIF) on your TV set. Play slide shows with music, too!
    Plays MP3 music, either individual titles, all the music titles in a directory or M3U, B4S, PLS and ASX playlists.
    Plays MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and DivX recordings made with the Hauppauge WinTV with SoftPVR or WinTV-PVR's. Will also play most other MPEG-1/2 standard video files. Will also play most standard DivX movies*. With MediaMVPā€™s remote control, you can pause, rewin, fast forward or jump through your recorded videos.
    Remote control for easy access to your PC media from your TV set. MediaMVPs remote control allows you to navigate through your PCs disk drives, and displays media names, directories and other information on the TV set. MediaMVPs remote also can control the audio volume and mute of videos and music being played.

    Note: This model has hardware decoder for MPEG 1/2 it uses software for Divx(AVI) can also play Xivd KVCD. Software side deccorder is slower but the latest update to the server has made it run smooth. The hardware decoder for MPEG is better for FF/RR than the software. The skin themes you see on the prior post and newer ones below is what I've created to use with the box. Newer models now playback in Digital Audio

    How to run to Dual MediaMVP Servers running on the same subnet mask Network

    Idea
    Test this out how to use a Wireless Laptop on the same subnet mask to run two Hauppauge MediaMVP Servers where your primary is on HTPC and the secondary would be the Laptop.

    Reason
    Okay tested this out and it works! MY WDS wireless ethernet converter that makes any wired device had stop working with MVP. It works on other wired but not on MVP. I did try another one same deal, boots then reboots in loop, reset doesn't help either.

    Project Equipment:

    Wired Media MVP
    Cat 5e 350MHz Ethernet Cable
    DELL D600 850MHz Latitude with 512MB of RAM with Hitachi 40GB 7,200RPM HDD, 10/100 Intel PRO Mini PCI NIC + Wireless 54G NIC

    How too
    The area where I had the MVP doesn't have any wired Ethernet connection, I would have to drill into the side wall of the house then drill again into a basement window to pass-thru Ethernet cable to the switch. I already go to many wires adding more just doesn't look right so here goes nothings:

    Second MVP Server on the same Subnet Mask

    1. crossover cable
    2. media mvp player
    3. laptop with wired 10/100 and wireless 802.11 g/n (either one)
    4. media mvp server software

    If you have wireless already running on the laptop leave it alone.
    On the 10/100 set it to 100 full
    Example:

    IP address: 192.169.11.12
    Subnet mask: 255.255.255.255
    Default Gateway: 192.168.11.12

    DNS Server: router IP goes here

    5. Install/run/configure the mediamvp software
    5a bind the IP address to MVP when you see OK 3secs ..
    6. Change the theme
    7. Click on start then run type: services.msc
    7a. Right click on each MVP Server change log as to your admin user name
    7b. Add the pass word and restart both services.
    8. Connect it to your Laptop 10/100
    9. Unplug the MVP
    0. Replug the MVP

    First these you might not be able to open video files, but just reboot the laptop and it should be okay now. You can pull in from the other MediaMVP Server well where every you have Pictures, Videos, Radio, Music, Internet and Weather these are in my themes, but if you use the default works also.

    Any question just post them here. The same laptop can be taken on the road for travel then connect to the hotel room SDTV or whatever set they have that has s-video and stereo audio. The you can relax and watch the movies you brought with you instead.

    Note: This is not the same laptop I use for traveling, as 850MHz can't work with Divx (AVI) but it can work with MPEG2 without jitter/shutter/hicups audio/video sync problems are not present.

    EZ question - laptop video to TV challenge

    I have hooked up my 18 month old compaq laptop to my TV using S Video. I see only a still image of the laptop screen display, not what is actually showing on the laptop. No icons, no images matching what I see onthe laptop.

    In the past I was able to get this to work but what happened? Restarting is not solving. Please help!

    Have you updated the video driver and made sure you have the full control panel that gives you options for LCD, CRT, External Monitor. Eventhough you can use the Function key [Fn] and one of the [F1 through F12] most laptop use F5 to switch from LCD, CRT, External Monitor or TV.

    Which OS are you running?

    ReNamer is the best to use I found as you can setup presets for any tv show or movie that has those annoying digits either in the front or end of the file. Batch renaming is all done for before and after. The program is a gem and it's free!
