I've heard that the latest PS3 software (2.10 I think) broke something 
in the DLNA code (the portion of UPnP which allows you to use PS3 as a 
frontend for MythTV). I don't have a PS3 (yet) so I can't test it. I 
believe the problem was that the latest software can't stream videos 
from a DLNA backend.

Would be great if you could test it and see how it works.
