    This is very much a hack of the rolling file, and I hope it is temporary. Changing emulation mode to use the web server for live tv will be a lot of work, on top of really disrupting everything that I actually would have fun doing, so before starting work on it I do want to see MVP users committing to NPVR now that I believe they have something to really work with.

    Cheers Martin, well all I can say is thank you for getting this far. I do hope some other MVP users will wade in with NPVR now, this is something to really work with.

    all the best

    I had tried NPVR with my MVP's but it had not worked well so I had stuck with GBPVR. I will try with new MVPMC dongle in next couple of days. I have to say I am looking to buy one newer device (Egreat M34a is looking favourite) in next month or so as the lack of HD playback is an issue. The MVP is however great for music and background TV so I don't want to replace all for some time yet

    I just thought I'd bump this a bit as I am amazed that so few seem to want this with NPVR. Did everyone sell their MVP's? Or just not moving to NPVR?

    Thumbs up

    This new dongle is great I haven't been able to test it to much but it seems stable. Skipping works. Live TV works. Thanks for yor work mvallevand. Now I can continue using my old MVPs with NPVR which I find even more stable than GBPVR. Great!!

    There is however a minor thing I noticed, it seems as if the volume contriol does not work anymore. I use analog out through the SCART connector and it seems the volume is stuck on a "medium" value. No big problem as I can control it thorugh the TV volume instead.

    I was in the "not moving to NPVR" group, due to the lack of MVP support. I'd pretty much stopped visting the GBPVR forums and had started to think about alternative PVR software (definitely wasn't going to get rid of my 2 perfectly functional MVPs).

    So I was delighted when I discovered this thread yesterday. I gave the updated dongle a go with NPVR last night and it's working very well so far. It's a big thank you to Martin from me, and I hope enough people agree to encourage him to keep up the great work.

    Hmmm - new dongle works fine but NPVR/MVP is not a good combination - Am I being thick?

    Does NPVR no longer transcode AVI/MKV files to MPG for playback? I can't find any config options

    Also as mentioned in forums before NPVR does not appear to select dongle mentioned in config file and just uses the dongle.bin file.

    Even though I have an A-100 in the living room for mail viewing, I would love to be able to re-plug my MVPs in the other rooms. I'll check this out one of these days. I'm depending on Martins excellent work anyway for years now - MVP as well as PCH. Thank you

    I haven't tried AVI/MKV conversion.

    As to the dongle.bin I'm not sure what I have done different to you but my MVP's are almost certainly loading dongle.npvr.bin because that is the only file I have in NPVR Dongle directory ending in .bin (unless it is somehow managing to load dongle.bin_original which I suspect not)

    I have NPVR running on same server as GB-PVR, all I think I did to get this working was change dongle name in NPVR config.xml, stop GB-PVR recording service, change settings of NPVR to run at least 1 instance of MVP, stop NPVR recording service, restart NPVR recording service and MVP boots straight into NPVR with new dongle.....
