I was thinking more along the lines of just making existing recordings
available to other UPnP devices. For scheduling and all that, you're right,
there's no standard defined yet, but UPnP A/V would do just fine for
accessing existing recordings.

Doesn't UPnP just define HTTP GET as the current method for this? From what
I've seen after doing some network sniffing, our D-Link UPnP Media Renderer
does HTTP GETs when grabbing files.
