The Hauppauge MediaMVP is a small settop box.

Because it is faster to create a text GUI on the box, instead of 
transferring the OSD over the wire.

I am using it with the MediaMVP box, and LOVE it. Recently looked at 
the Windows version, and it was quite usable as well. The Qt port is 
very early, but might already be usable (not tested).
