It includes a hardware MPEG decoder to process digital video movies, while music and digital pictures are software decoded by MediaMVP's processor. It receives the digital media from a PC via an Ethernet LAN, decodes the media and outputs video through composite and S-Video connections, and audio through stereo audio output connectors. MediaMVP and the PC operate in a 'client-server' system, where the MediaMVP requests menus and media from the PC, and the PC satisfies those requests. MediaMVP receives user commands from the infrared remote control and sends these commands to the PC server. Menus seen on the TV set are created via HTML on the PC and sent over the network to the MediaMVP for display on the TV set. Custom user interfaces for the TV set can be created by making new HTML screens on the PC.
