It is the Hauppauge Network Media Decoder which uses a wired Ethernet connection to transfer MP3 audio, photos and video files from a PC to a TV.
Among the file formats it supports are MPEG-1/MPEG-2 videos, JPEG and GIF digital pictures, and MP3 music.
It is relatively cheap too at around £100. And if you don’t fancy running a cable from your study to the living room it will work wirelessly with a wireless bridge.
A/V connection options include S-video, composite video and RGB, plus stereo audio output. The MediaMVP is compatible with any PC running Windows XP or XP Professional.
Hauppauge will have a whole series of these devices on sale before long including an 802.11g wireless version that will stream video.
