I've got a Samsung UE32C6510 32" LED HD TV and mythtv appears on the list of DLNA servers.
I can play recorded TV, Videos and Music directly using the TV remote.
The only (minor) issue I have is that some of the TV recordings do not have a title visible on the screen (the date of the recording does show, though) - but some of the recordings do have their title listed! Also, it is possible to display the list of recordings ordered by date or title (where subfolders are shown; a different folder for each date or for each title - which minimises the problem noted above).
When I bought the TV I wasn't aware of this feature, so a pleasant surprise.
