Next build 800 will be out soon.. You'll now be able to change the backgrounds themes, animated objects and more. There will be several new mods included to the theme also. I am currently re-coding and add new brand code plus trying out new ideas to make using the Hauppauge MediaMVP just as fun to use. I am sure you'll even like this one just like you did with Build 700.

This build uses higher graphics than Build 700, and save you 80% less HDD space, just to let you know Well see the video. Enjoy. EST on the theme release not yet more testing has to be done with the Media Changer and the theme.

4 New Mods - Easy to add your own stuff now..

My Shots (4x) - Quick access to your own Favorite Shots

Customized My Logo Objects

Note: Another easy feature will be to be able to turn off all media objects like the new Cam, Weather Cast, My Shots or even My Logos. Right now above is Media Off but only the animated Orb and My Logo in this case MP is showing. Just drop in your favorite logo save it then run the Media Changer and that's it a new look will appear.

Here's what the black theme would look like above.. Note these are actual working themes but the process now is quick to configure and be ready to display on your TV (HD/SD)

I was asked what does this do?

Web Tool for MediaMVP, to use with my SevenMCE Build 800 or higher themes. It allows you to customized over 48+ objects on the theme. So in other words you can make whatever you want to be displayed on the MediaMVP. You can make your own stuff as well. When you install this it feature it will also launch into your browser. There is plenty of information about what it does in Help on Media Changer. Again for those who use Firefox you need to download an add-on called OpenDownload, otherwise you won't be able to customized your MediaMVP. Those who use IE6, IE7 and IE8 are okay.

It's supports all PVR software the next build will support more features. Like Pre-Define Custom Themes based on PVR Software to use on Media MVP. Even though a lot of them don't support the MVP this will make is so, graphic wise, but you can do it yourself manually using this Web Tool!

As of April 1st 2009, due the bad news from the guys over at FileFront who has been hosting all my files for MediaMVP have announced they'll be closing shop on March 30th 2009. So now I'll be hosting my files only Build 600 thru 800 and Media Changer 2009 Web Tool for MediaMVP will be hosted by me. I'll post the link when I've completed the move. There will be a brand new web site created which will be hosted again by me.

All other tools current like Tipstir Network Tools 2009 will be hosted. So if you want to now is the best time to download prior builds and themes. Because when they're gone that's it. I am only focusing on Build 600, 800 and MediaChanger 2009. Media Changer software will replace all builds soon as it will be the main theme customize so multi-mediamvp themes can be created through it.

New download file structure will be as follows..

MediaMVP (main folder)
Themes (sub folder)
MediaChanger (sub folder)
Network Toosl (sub folder)

Thanks for your continous support..
