I don't know where the problem is, but none of my Syabas firmware devices
play nice with Mythtv since UPnP was added in mythtv (0.19 ? .. I forgot). I
found the solution on the NMT forums to patch the mythtvupnp file. This
makes the popcorn hour work nicely with myth UPnP. BTW, popcorn hour works
with all other UPnPs (Twonky, Tversity, PlayOn, etc etc). May be the other
UPnP servers accepts the wrongly encoded URI request with "%3F" instead of
"?". That doesnt mean Myth UPnP is busted but it just that its not as
forgiving as other UPnP servers.

Thanks
