So there is this big fancy media center revolution going on. Well what is the point of buying an entire new computer when all of your media is on a preexisting computer anyway? This is where Hauppauge is stepping in with their MediaMVP 802.11g Wi-Fi enabled set-top decoder box. It currently supports MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and DivX for video; MP3 for music; and JPEG and GIF for pictures. Fans of XviD or WMA? Do not fret. The MediaMVP is powered on an open-source Linux operating system, so upgrades and hacks galore will be coming. Unfortunately it is limited to connection with Windows PCs only and it has a somewhat high price tag of $260—still cheaper than most retail media centers though.
