I'm a newbie so my apologies if this is an obvious question;
Just wanted to check if the MVP server can actually "relay" to a usb-uirt?
The goal being to drive channel changes on an external cable tuner from the MVP itself (and feed a PVR250).
If so, any way of making the MVP react to more buttons from its IR (shortcuts to channel changes for instance)? Would that be possible through a plug-in?

Many thanks

btw: this is a very impressive piece of software - congratulations.

I dont understand what you're after here...

I'm sorry my question was confusing.

The first part is covered (ie usb-uirt); thanks for the answer.

The second part was about grasping some of the plug-in capabilites before looking at sample code.
What I'm really after is a way to play DVDs on the MVP by transcoding (AC3 audio) on the fly using Videolan's VLC or MPlayer/MEncoder. (Could even do DivX transcode with enough CPU power on the server).

The plug-in would in effect drive another transcoding/server process.
Is this achievable or am I missing a simpler solution?
