MVIX SERIES USB DRIVER
Media Streamers Mvix MXHD Network media players have been around for quite some time, but with the announcement of the Apple TVthere seems to have been a resurgence of interest in the product category. It's the latest in a series of products from the company that combines a network hard drive enclosure with a digital media Mvix Series USB drop in a standard PC hard drive and you're good to go.
Earlier versions of the product developed Mvix Series USB of a cult following--thanks to appearances on sites such as ThinkGeek--as a do-it-all networked media player. That's not to say everything is perfect. There are some significant caveats: On the other hand, those that prefer slick graphical user interfaces and prefer simplicity to flexibility would probably be served by upcoming devices like the Netgear Digital Entertainer HD or Apple TV. Mvix First, if you plan on using an internal hard drive inside the MXHD, you'll need to crack the unit open and do some tinkering. It's a somewhat confined space inside the device so you'll definitely need a short IDE cable to make it fit. We would have liked to see one of these included, as it's really the only way the MXHD will close.

We also had a little difficulty with the screw on the casing, as it wouldn't quite fit right for us after several attempts. We eventually got it seated, but it was a pain. Next, you'll need to format Mvix Series USB hard drive, and the manual has instructions for doing so.
However, keep in mind that Mvix Series USB you have a sizeable hard drive, this could takes a long time--hours rather than minutes. Still, we like the fact that the drive installation is left up to the user--you get a much better bang for your buck by buying a third-party drive, and you can always upgrade it to a larger capacity in the months and years ahead.
Once you get that up and running, you'll probably want to configure it to connect to either your wired or wireless network. The directions in the manual look imposing for a wired network--we certainly didn't feel like installing network Mvix Series USB from deep inside Windows XP's setup menus.

Instead, we played dumb and just connected everything, and it worked without a hitch with our D-Link DI router after setting the MXHD to look for the wired connection. Likewise, just following the onscreen prompts to log on Mvix Series USB our Wi-Fi network worked fine as well. As far as home-networking chores go, it's pretty painless.
Before you set the Mvix MXHD in its permanent location, you'll also want to add files to the internal hard drive, if you're using one. This can be done Mvix Series USB by using the USB connection to a computer. That's a significant annoyance that we ran into--we'd rather be able to transfer files to the hard drive using either the wired or wireless network connection, even if it proved slower. Mvix is promising a firmware upgrade to correct Mvix Series USB, but like all promised firmware updates, we can't guarantee when or if it will actually happen.
All of the connections are in the back, which is sometimes inconvenient for quick flash-drive hookups. On the front of the player is a small LCD screen that can be used to navigate the player if the remote goes missing. Below that are a few status lights indicating which connections are active. Further down are some front-panel controls--including a navigation joystick--which do give you rudimentary control over the MXHD if the remote goes Mvix Series USB. However, the front-panel controls are pretty frustrating; when we pressed the joystick down once, it would randomly move the cursor down either one or two spaces. We were Mvix Series USB skipping over the files we wanted and selecting the wrong ones when we got impatient.
Just stick to the remote and you'll be fine. The remote itself feels a little bit cheap, and the lack of button differentiation definitely makes it difficult to use by feel, but luckily it has none of the same issues the front-panel control has. If you're in a well-lit room, Mvix Series USB works well enough but it's rough to navigate in the dark. We were frustrated by some button-placement issues, though.
For instance, the Menu button is oft-used for DVDs, yet it's located very far from the Mvix Series USB directional pad. As always, Mvix Series USB nice universal remote will put this issue to rest. Interface When connected to a TV, you'll want to do your navigating via the onscreen interface using the remote.

The interface itself is pretty utilitarian, but we've definitely seen worse. On the left hand, there's a navigation menu with five choices: Going into any of the media-specific categories will filter your digital files by type so that your video files won't show up when you're browsing your music files. Under mixed, all of your digital media files will show up, regardless of file type. Mvix Once you make a media-type selection, it will ask you what source you want to browse--whether that's the internal hard drive, a connected hard drive, or a computer via the network. We would have preferred an option that allowed you to just view all your sources at once, instead of having to remember where you put a specific file. Once you make that selection, the MXHD will list the files and folders of that source--and that's about it.
