Comment (by woody-mythtv@…):

 long time user here (10+ years), first time posting.
 just upgraded from ubuntu 12.04 to 16.04 LTS (if it aint broke don't fix

 DLNA changes have stopped "inFuse" media player (iOS) from

 Attempt at Summary of Fixes/Problems in mythtv_29_patches:
 1. metadata request id case sensitivity
 2. devicelist.xml single => double quote
 3. Case sensitivity of country code comparison
 4. omit device profilename
 5. Devicelist removal (Kodi)
 6. Date query timezone
 7. Fourth field

 Some of these are bugs on mythtv side, others are accommodations to buggy
 clients I'm not sure they go as far as breaking mythtv's implementation.

 Suggested possible ways forward:
 ppa: put up a ppa 0.28/0.29 with the fixes so that users can easily test a
 wide variety of devices / software and report working/not working.
 0.28 - put these fixes in as is
 0.29 - add a configuration section to turn any contentious ones on
