 I recently got a Sony BDP-S570 blu-ray player and wanted to connect it to
 MythTV.  Right off it won't even discover myth, so I did some searching
 and found minidlna.  Ran minidlna and the player connected just fine and
 was able to play videos.  This made me curious about what was happening
 with myth so I traced the packets and found that the request SOAPACTION:
 returned different protocol information between myth and minidlna.  I made
 a quick change in myth to just use the protocol information from minidlna
 and now the player will connect to myth.  Then I tried to browse and the
 player said there were no playable videos, so I dug into that.  This also
 turned out to be a protocol problem with the video.  I made a quick change
 to have the protocolInfo always be http-
 This allowed the player to play my recordings from myth.

 I'm guessing that the protocol information returned from myth is
 incomplete and the mime type resolution is not granular enough for some
 players.  I realize that the current implementation probably works for
 many players but it might not be implemented according to spec and will
 cause problems for newer players?
