MediaMVP ReplayTV support is for real. I should know since I'm the developer ;-)
Been working on it for about 3 months now.
I've been holding off on announcing it since it's not quite ready for primetime.
What it does so far is:
-Runs SSDP discovery and discovers all replaytv's & dvarchives on the lan.
-If dvarchive is present it does enough handshaking to kick dvrachive into 5K mode.
-Once devices are discovered it presents a menu of devices to select.
-When a device is selected it pulls down the guide snapshot, parses it,
and displays a list of shows/episodes.
When a show is highlited all the movie/episode details are shown.
Selecting a show starts it playing.
You can presently pause, ffwd, and bring up an onscreen display while playing.
I only own RTV5K's so to work on 4K stuff I kicked dvarchive into 4k mode.
It seems to correctly parse a 4K guide from dvarchive but hasn't been tested with a real 4k
unit. (Anyone want to do some 4K testing?)
Major things missing:
-Parsing the .ndx file, and seeking. I hope to implement 28sec-fwd, 7sec-back, and
jump seek functionality by the end of this month.
-rtvlib functionality and menus to allow deleting a show & resuming play from the
last point viewed.
One last note is that mediamvp requires a dhcp server & tftpserver to boot the load.
Our development/build environment is linux based. I use my linux box to boot the mvp.
I understand there are some free windows based dhcp & tftp servers though for
those without a linux box.
Once I complete "Major things missing" I plan on creating mvpmc replaytv webpage
with configuration details, screen shots, etc... This will probably happen around early
Hopefully some of you will find it useful.
