[mythtv-users] PS3 doesn't see Mythtv / upnp

I finally solved this.
It was my Linksys wrt54g-tm wireless router firmware.
I found someone else on the web who did this, so I took the factory
firmware off it and installed "DD-WRT".
After that, MythTV showed up on my PS3.
This really should be placed somewhere up on the MythTV web site so it
is easy to find.
While the factory firmware was running, I did try disabling it's
firewall and opening ports, but nothing allowed the PS3 to see it.
DD-WRT just works for this.
Today, I set up transcoding and I still have to deal with the limited
bandwidth, which causes a sometimes choppy experience and makes my
laptop drop a connection, but at least I have something to work with now.
Thanks everybody for all your suggestions,
