Sorry.  I found this link:

 I realize now that it is TVersity, but I really wonder if this is
what is happening with the TV.

They mention that Samsung makes a getcontentFeatures.dnla.org: 1 call.
 I have no clue on how to check if that is the same here.

What I see on the user front-end is "Not Supported File Format".  I
tried to check if I can view JPEG images and other video files... but
I cannot find them in the crappy UI supplied by the TV.

For the record, I have two PS3's for playing video content and they
work great.  If I can find good TVs that plug into the network *and*
actually play my recorded video, it's a dream solution!

If it matters -- my recordings are current MythDora (MythTV 0.21),
recorded from a HDHomeRun.  From what I understand, these are MPEG2
streams and are the same as that broadcast, so I'd be surprised if the
HDTV could not display them.  The Samsung LN46A850 is Linux based too,
so I had hoped for more compatibility.  ;-)
