This FAQ says:

"This could be caused by you having multiple IP addresses on the machine 
and Serviio binding to the wrong one. Insert the IP address of the 
machine running Serviio into 'Bound IP address' field in Network 
Settings section in the console or pass the system variable 
serviio.boundAddr including the IP address when starting the server.

Also make sure that TCP port 8895 and UDP 1900 are open in your firewall.

If you are on a Linux based OS, make sure you set up multicast routes 

I have set IP address in mythtv to, which is on my eth1 
network where the TV is.

All firewall rules are gone.

And I've routed to eth1.

Could it be a IPv6 problem? I don't use IPv6, but if mythtv broadcasts
on IPv6 it will only go to localhost.
