When using MythVideo, the content lists come from the database, not the 
filesystem.  All frontends will be pulling the same exact list out of 
the database, and be displaying the same exact content, unless you have 
file browse mode enabled.  Browse mode ignores the database, and rescans 
the filesystem every time you enter MythVideo.  Browse mode should not 
result in such behavior, but is the only way I can think of that 
different frontends would show different content.

In 0.24 and previous, the UPnP server is completely independent of 
MythVideo, and uses the old local folder definitions set through the 
frontend, rather than the Storage Group paths.  In 0.25, the UPnP server 
will pull its content list out of the same database table as everything
