The Windows-only software (XP / 2000) had a couple of components. One was a background server that talked to the device and the other was a user-interface (Figure 2) used to manage the directories that would be searched for content. If you have a firewall in place, you have to make sure that connections are allowed between the MediaMVP server and the device itself.

Once I configured the directories I wanted to export, I turned back to the MediaMVP and powered it on. Figure 3 shows the boot-up screen of the device where it initializes itself and then searches for servers on the network
Figure 3: Bootup Screen
Once the device was fully booted, a rather spartan main menu (Figure 4) was presented. Like the other screens, a screen-saver would appear if it were left idle for too long. The screen-saver appeared as a bouncing logo, or optionally a black screen.
