myth-0.21-fixes upnp server works out of the box with Pioneer PRO-111FD
TV (which claims to be "DLNA certified").
The playback is very smooth and there is no deinterlacing issues etc.
(TV handles everything by itself). But a lot of the functionality is
lost (not even fast-forward, at least with HD MPEG2s).
