Currently we're only storing the codec information for new recordings, with 
those made prior to the recent changes we don't know that the codec was H.264 
and it falls back to MPEG2_TS. I plan on adding an external utility, or 
extending mythutil, to scan older recordings and update their metadata, 
including codec info.

There's currently no PS detection support, I'll be making changes to 
mythtranscode to store this information. I'm not sure how to detect changes 
when recordings have been transcoded outside MythTV, i.e. not through 
mythtranscode. We may have to start hashing recordings and then have a 
housekeeper process spot changes and re-evaluate the file.

Should it be saying something different?

If you haven't set up a music storage group then it will be looking for the 
files in the wrong place. The album art checks are harmless, but I'll make sure 
we don't list album art in the upnp response if there is none available.

Thanks for testing! I'll try and make some progress on the stuff I mentioned, 
in the next few days, hopefully we'll fix some of the issues you're seeing.
