That's correct, assuming that the show was recorded by the slave backend.

You sure you have appropriate CODEC's installed for WMP (i.e. you don't 
get MPEG-2 for free).  If so, perhaps it's another case of MS deciding 
you don't need to UPnP non-MS formats, like with the XBox 360 (which 
supports AVI, WMV, and MPEG-4 part 2 (in MPEG-4 or Quicktime container) 
or MPEG-4 part 10 (in MPEG-4 container)--the latter 2 added only after 
enough 360 users complained).
