Thanks for the reply.  I'll install mythtv 0.20 and give it a go to see if it works.  Is there anywhere you'd recommend to look for rampup info on uPnP other than the docs on the official upnp forum site?

And is there anywhere other than the code that I should look to see which bits of the spec have and haven't been implemented?
