[Mythtv-soc] MythTV Autoconfiguration Status

I have been working on the automatic backend discovery 
mechanism using UPnP which seems to work. However, I ran 
into a snag in my own setup since I have multiple subnets 
in my house. The test MythTV master backend supports jumbo 
frames and is on a different segment than my test MythTV 
clients, so UPnP doesn't work very well. I'm investigating 
ways to get around this. Multicast DNS is well-established 
in that it has servers that help you bridge subnets. I'm 
looking at writing my own implementation of mDNS for 
MythTV so I can get support for multiple subnets while 
leveraging existing (well-known) packages on the router.
