Has anyone had much success with a brand of HDTV or media player playing your MythTv recordings without and additional transcoder or additional tinkering? I have had poor luck with the 360 as a client and great success with the PS3 (http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/494981) 

But even though my Blu-Ray player is Sony it doesn't play the recordings.

So who has had luck with a great DLNA player? One built into your TV?


I have one Asus O!Play HD2 and one A.C.Ryan HD Mini.

With the latest firmware both works reasonably well.
I can display the recordings ordered by all, date, title, category, TV channel, and possibly some more I can't remember.

The O!Play is a bit slow in starting playback but is otherwise fast enough in the menus, and when listing all recordings it orders them chronologically.

The HD Mini is noticeably faster in starting playback but when listing all recordings it orders them alphabetically.

I guess the recording format is quite important regarding which devices can play the recordings.
I also have an Asus Transformer (Android) Pad that I so far has not got to play my recordings which are MPEG-2 for SD and H.264 for HD.
