NMT stands for Networked Media Tank. This is a common term used for a family of devices that all run a media platform solution made by Syabas.

By installing mvpmcx2 these devices can be used as 'front end clients', extending the NextPVR UI (User Interface), with full client functionality, over your entire home network. Benefits over a PC Client include size, noise (many are fanless), cost and avoiding 'codec hell' (The NMT's onboard chips will handle most common media formats natively).
