Hauppage Set-Top Box

This image was lost some time after publication.

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.
