It works.  I watched a video from a mythtv media server with a PS3
frontend (haven't tried mpeg2 recorded programs) .  It doesn't
recognize all codecs, vidx, for instance.  I haven't got to do much
with it, but the big issue that I noticed was how long it took to
discover the mythtv media server.  The "search for media server"
didn't seem to work, it just took time and it eventually discovered
the server.
