 The UPNP listings of recordings are generated on demand so when you make the request the info is looked up from the database. It's only the mythvideo content stuff that gets updated periodically rather than live.

 It's a mostly unused function, mainly due to the fact that despite the name "Universal" it's anything but :)  Every client is looking for something different.
And of course it's relatively low usage by users makes it get a lot less attention.

You could do a packet cature of the upnp traffic when loading the list in your player and use that to verify if the recording was in the list that way. At least that's where I would start with it.
