As I said, I have a MediaMVP and Vompserver running. Have had for some 
time now (six months or so). The biggest problem is the lack of support 
for subtitles. And I agree that as with the current properties I am not 
going to use this as my main device. And you can not edit timers with it 
only wiev them. Also I would like for the resume to be possible while 
changing from vdr to mediamvp or vv. But anyway it is good for as a 
second device in the bedroom. It's small and makes no sound and you can 
use it for wieving live tv or recordings.

And for Stuart, I joined the forum a long time ago :)

Still remains to be answered if anyone has tried MVPVdr?
