[mythtv-users] upnp and NetGear EVA8000

I just picked up a NetGear EVA8000 - it looked like it has good HD 
support, and seemed fairly standard network-wise.  It's not doing so well 
with my mythtv setup (0.20.2), though.

I was pleased that the device found the server immediately, but it doesn't 
seem to have the convenient display that a mythfrontend does (listed by 
show title, then by recording date for episodes of a show).

More importantly, there are two things it does very wrong:
   1) it shows 4-6 copies of each episode in the list.  They're all 
identical as far as I can see.
   2) none of the shows actually play.  I get an error message if I choose 
any of them.

If I share my mythtv directory as a samba share, and point the device at 
that, then it plays the videos, but it's not very easy to find shows that 
way ...

Anyone else have this device?  Any hints what I might be doing wrong? Are 
newer (svn) builds of mythtv better for upnp server support?  I'm willing 
to go bleeding edge if needed, but don't want to unless it's likely to
