I am the developer that has been implementing the UPnP protocol in MythTV.

At this point, I have been focusing on the backend only.  I am mostly
interested in media discovery and streaming for dedicated upnp players.  I
do have plans to support scheduling and other aspects of the whole MythTv
Experience.  However, I don't currently use MythFrontend, so haven't had the
drive to make it a UPnP Client (control point/renderer).

There have not been any updates in a while, and most likely won't be any
(except bug fixes if needed) for a couple more months.  My day job has me
working 60-80 hours a week.  We have a release happening in December, and
until my work lets up, I can only monitor the Dev List and IRC.  

UPnP support is something that I really want working well, and plan on
bringing it up to true standards compliance when I do finally have time to
work on it.  (It is currently only a partial implementation and allows a
handful of client devices to work).
