In SVN, revision numbers are global, so every check in--whether to trunk 
or to the -fixes branch (or any other experimental branch, such as 
mythmusic-ui or mythtv-vid or...)-- increments the "current" revision of 
trunk /and/ -fixes.

So, though current -fixes is SVN r19921, it hasn't gotten any new 
features since 0.21 was released (r16468).

As far as the UPnP stuff goes, I don't know whether you have the right 
stuff.  Fixes are often backported to -fixes (thus the name ;), but new 
features never are.  So, if what made that version of trunk work was a 
fix, you have it.  If it was a new feature, you don't.

I'm guessing, though, that you have what you need, as I'm pretty sure it 
was working at the release of 0.21.  Note, though, that the XBox 360 
UPnP can't play MPEG-2 recordings in the MPEG Systems container (i.e. 
what you get from PVR-x50's or ATSC/DVB).
