I guess it's "just working" for me with my LinkPlayer2 althought I haven't
messed with it all that much...I like the mythfrontend interface better than
uPnP and both mythbox and LinkPlayer are attached to the same display. I do
currently have my Xbox360 unplugged from the network because it pegs
mythbackend via uPnP - it appears my option at this point is to upgrade to
newer SVN and use --noupnp, if the patch from last week doesn't work for
some reason. Or just leave the 360 unplugged for a while, I am not using all
that much - way too much TV to watch!
