 When the UPnP server was converted over to Storage Groups and the Video
 Library's database tables, that code was completely rewritten, and the
 directory support you're requesting was never re-implemented. While a
 previous version of MythTV supported a tree view of the content, the
 current code never has, so whether or not this is a feature request or a
 bug is really a question of semantics.

 Regardless, tying the UPnP server back into the directory structure is not
 the ideal, or planned, solution. Since the UPnP server now uses the Video
 Library's tables, and has access to the Video Library's metadata for the
 content, the planned solution is to incorporate the assorted metadata-
 generated views available in the frontend, one of which is uses the
 existing directory structure. Hardwiring this to the directory structure,
 as was the previous behavior, is at best a temporary stopgap solution.
