_Short version_ How can I verify (telnet, ???) that UPnP is running
and properly returning lists of media on MythTV?
-myth .20 from universe repository
-every myth package apart from lirc installed
-samba installed (and working)
-XBMC 2.0.1 from the "standard place" (not a build I did on my own)
-set up myth backend
-start up myth frontend on same PC. Runs fine!
--Record some shows so that I now have a list in recoded shows
-share video dir via samba for "out of mythtv" testing
-verify share is accessible from a windows laptop
-set up SMB share in XBMC. It works, and lists the 1006_datestamp.mpg
files as it should. **this verifies network connectivity**
-set up UPNP share in XBMC. It immediatly returns back "cannot
connect to server"
So obviously this COULD be an XBMC problem. I want to verify that
UPNP is running on the backend.
I'd heard VLC supports UPNP, but I downloaded the newest version for
windows and couldn't find the way to scan for servers/etc (apparently
it's under the playlist->manage options, but I couldn't find it).
