Hauppauge MediaMVP - small hardware device that was supposed to use its
own Hauppauge Windows software as its 'server' - the vomp plugins allow
VDR to be the server for these devices.

The vomp windows client seems to be a software implementation of the
MediaMVP hardware, so hence it's using the same protocols :) There is no
standard method by which to 'pass all the menus on the network'...

Yes, works fine. I use it from time to time with a full-featured card.
Mainly I just stream a single channel with VLC, tho :)
