Thanks for the information.
I'd suspected that uPNP wasn't heavily used and that most people simply
connect a PC directly to the TV - my latest laptop even has an HDMI output!
It looks like I'll have to take a look at the code and see how the listings
for recordings are generated. It sounds as though there might be some
inconsistency in my database which is confusing the uPNP code.
