I have one that I bought to replace a front end on my LCD TV.  It has worked
great for serving up my content through NFS mounts - iso, mkv, mpeg2, avi
all work, though some are more feature rich (i.e. ff/rw on mkv doesnt always
work properly).

I have tried using Myth's uPNP, but the Popcorn Hour winds up timing out
when I drill down to "By Title" in the recordings group.  I dont know if
this is a Myth or PCH issue... In the meantime, I just put together a few
PHP pages that are served up from my master backend.  I can browse my
recordings and videos, and get the added benefit of cover art, etc from the
Myth database.

I'd love to see a full Myth feature set for it, whether through mvpmc (which
I currently use elsewhere in the house) or native to Myth.
