No - The device itself is not capable of mpeg4 playback, unless
you use it with the Windows-only server software that comes with it. Then
it uses the "server" to re-encode the mpeg4 stream into something that
the MVP can play. If you want to use the MVP with mvpmc (i.e. interoperate
with MythTV directly) then your best bet is to use hardware mpeg2 capture cards.
