I'm still on .21 mythbackend, but will have a .23 dev box this week, and
will be eager to help at that time.

Sorry I missed the UPNP query of last week...

UPNP streams excellent for me to PS3, and Patriot Box Office HD Media Player


Prefer the Patriot for many reasons, one is it will allow dynamic change
between audio tracks embedded in an HD stream.   PS3 wont let me do that so
