Right now, MythTV only operates as a UPNP server.  It does not support 
client functionality.  As a hackish work around, you can use djmount and 
access the files in MythVideo.

One of devs picked up interest in this a few months back, and added some 
partial code for a UPNP client in mythfrontend.  Much of it is 
committed, but unfinished, and sitting in inactive code.  It may be 
ready in time for 0.25.
