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).
