All you have to do is to ad calibre to the list of servers in Marvin: Tapping on the cloud icon at the bottom, you can choose "Web Browser" oder "OPDS Catalogs". Both works, OPDS gives you a more structured list. There is a "tap here" line that opens a window to enter the address for your calibre server.
You find the address in calibre when you click on the "connect/share" button, there it says stop or run Content server. (I think by default this is activated in calibre). You'll have to type in all those digits and points in Marvin, but only once, then you can save it as a favourite.

That's the way I do it and it works just fine.
I like Dropbox for many things, but I prefer to keep my ebook library locally and just carry the few dozen books I need at a time.
Thanks for the information. I'll see if I can figure it out.
