I noticed that todays trunk is broken what comes to Samsung TV's.
The newer 2013 model sees the mythbackend server, but is unable to list
any contents ---> no files can be seen on recordings view.

The older TV sees BubbleUPnP and minidlna servers, but not the mythbackend
versions newer than ~ July/August (I quess I have to setup an older
mythtv setup just to see where the problem became visible, the schema
changes prevent me to test the older versions currently on the main server).

Do you happen to have Skifta available ? Unfortunately, it seems to be  
this summer, but it has been quite nice verification tool and currently Skifta
is unable to even see the Mythbackend, just like the older Samsung TV (2011).
Somehow I get the feeling that if Skifta works, also the Samsung TV's work.
