I was able to get my myth recordings and music to play on the mp115 with the
uShare server. That is encouraging... at least I know it can be done.
Unfortunately I don't know yet what it doesn't like about the myth server.
It appears the server never gets the "getRecording" request so I suppose
there is something in the description XML that the mp115 cannot parse.
I also think there may be some problems in processing '&' in titles. I saw
some error messages for "Law & Order". I'll keep poking around whenever I
can take the backend offline for a few hours.
In the meantime I added a little code to ushare to get title info from the
database. Not as nice as Myth's but more reasonable than file names.
