did you had a look at the docs?

- Plugin Configuration

It is essential to configure the plugin so that the dongle.bin version
matches the dongle.bin version that you are using, failure to do so may
result in effects such as:

    + Constantly returning to the "Contacting servers" screen
    + Main menu appears, but remote control doesn't work


you will have to provide that number in the vdr with your remote
Setup , Plugins, mediamvp, MediaMVP dongle bin Version
