Indeed. Today I had duplicates on <Unknown>
and "MythTV AV Media Server on mythtv",
but after adding some extra debug,
of course it consistently behaves itself:

viking: MythTV AV Media Server (, uuid:2d11d9ba- 
MythTV AV Media Server on mythtv (, uuid:59753d22- 

I suspect something strange with the SSDP caching.

Unknown seems to be caused by looking up localhost
when there is no backend running locally:

2007-09-19 12:16:53.583 HttpComms::done() - NetworkOperation Error on  
Finish: Connection refused (1): url: ' 

At least that one should be easy to fix :-)
