Can someone post a tcpdump for the (start of the) PS3/myth connection?

Or any hints here ...?

I was trying to get this working a couple weeks back, I changed all the
localhost addresses in my mythtv database to a real IP address. grepping
the sql database dump, there are *no* references to localhost in the sql
database, and the only references to are in the sql tvchain

I have restarted the backend a few times since the change.

I can see the incoming packets sent from the PS3 but no response from
the mythtv server :-/

But the broadcast packets looked weird - I don't have my tcpdump output
available right now, but the PS3 broadcast went to something like, and was wondering if that was expected.

I have a firewall on the backend too, but DHCP on it works fine.

AFAIR 1900 is the upnp (ssdp) port. My backend shows:
