I messed up....in reply to my own post:

> MediaServer:  MythTV could also advertise itself as a MediaServer service

The whole original idea for this was for MythTV to be a Server, not a 
renderer.  I meant to say that it could also potentially be a MediaRenderer, 
so any other compliant devices in the house could serve up content on the 
fly.  For the Windows users out there, you can just download the free MS 
Media Connect software, fire it up, and all of a sudden, Myth and other 
devices automatically recognize that there is new media available and can 
show it on your TV without any further setup.

Maybe in the near future we'll see our digital cameras equipped with Wifi and 
UPnP.  Then, you just walk into your house after a fun day at Disneyland, 
turn on the camera, and, without ever hooking the camera up to your computer 
to transfer the images, have it immediately available on your TV via Myth, or 
some other device they have on the market now.  :-)

Technology is cool....
