No, I'm running on a 192.168.x.x network.  And just verified some of the 
same problems on a PopCorn Hour box (another Syabas/SigmaDesig base 
box).  One of the most annoying features is the album list.  I see the 
1st album then the 2nd, then the 2nd over and over again.  It repeat 
over 20 time.  My MP101 box would have never gotten that far as there is 
also some sort of time out effecting both boxes.  Getting more data is 
paramount to locking up the session between the Mythtv box and it's UPNP 
clients. And I don't think I have ever been been able to play music 
using the album menu on either client.

I know mythth UPNP is still under development.   But shouldn't we move 
this thread to mythtv-users?
