What's the PS3 software version you're running?

Yes. OTOH, if you're using Myth mostly for HD, that shouldn't be a 
problem (wait, no, even then some stations use an audio codec that's not 
supported, so you need to transcode the audio after recording the show - 
I forgot the details).

So, how long does it take? Half an hour?

It could be that the DLNA code in MythTV is a bit flaky. I've heard that 
the PS3 works fine with other DLNA servers, such as MediaTomb. But 
consider this just a rumor at this point.
