Ok, thanks for your great efforts Greg!

Due to the environments that I work in, my development machines (read
>work< machines) run vista and xp, so no matter that it's crappy, but it
will save me having another machine in my overheated home office. :o)

Although I think it will be nice to get access to my myth media server
from which ever machine without having to set up file shares every time.

 No, I haven't commited the code that allows WMP11 to work. I've got it
working with movie posters and all here so I'll be commiting that this 

 Just a warning though, the WMP upnp client is kinda limited and crappy,
but it works well enough :) It only lets you have 1 big massive 
list of all videos available on the server, so no subfolders and such :)
