Hi John. I'm not sure I see your problem. I use this in mythlink
and upnp shows around the first 30 characters from that, and a spurious
date. I haven't used 'Series' much.
Perhaps you can tweak the format, or even edit the link names, to get a
display that suits you; then reset with a blank scan first. I think you
need to do your basic selection before upnp starts on it.
Maybe someone else?
