MythTV can act as a UPnP server, allowing compatibility with many media client devices. This page is intended to provide information on the various UPnP clients available and how they work with MythTV.
  
== UPnP client attributes ==
+
== Introduction ==
  
Any information about UPnP clients is helpful.   Some common questions are listed below:
+
MythTV 0.20 added support for UPnP AV, an open standard method for sharing multimedia content. This allows for a MythTV backend server to share its videos with UPnP clients.
  
===Hardware Support===
+
UPnP clients have some advantages over MythTV frontends, in that they are designed solely for multimedia playback, and are more suited for a home entertainment environment than many general purpose PCs. They are usually smaller, quieter, and use less power than a full MythTV frontend.
{| border=1 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=5
+
 
|'''Characteristic'''
+
However, since they are not full MythTV clients, they do not have the full MythTV feature set. These devices simply support playback of videos stored in the MythTV backend, and potentially accessing music and photos. Video playback support varies from device to device, but none support the full capabilities of a MythTV client, such as automatic commercial skipping, bookmarks, and flexible FF/REW playback controls.
|'''Example Values'''
+
 
 +
UPnP Device reports attempt to better document the capabilities of the various UPnP client options, and show MythTV users what to expect when using them. If you wish to create a new device report use the [[UPnP Client Template]].
 +
 
 +
With [[Release Notes - 0.28#Major Changes|MythTV 0.28]] the UPnP code has seen major changes, improved browsing modes, more metadata, artwork for all media, strict UPnP (2014) and DLNA compliance and support for additional UPnP features.

MythTV can act as a UPnP server, allowing compatibility with many media client devices. This page is intended to provide information on the various UPnP clients available and how they work with MythTV.

Introduction

MythTV 0.20 added support for UPnP AV, an open standard method for sharing multimedia content. This allows for a MythTV backend server to share its videos with UPnP clients.

UPnP clients have some advantages over MythTV frontends, in that they are designed solely for multimedia playback, and are more suited for a home entertainment environment than many general purpose PCs. They are usually smaller, quieter, and use less power than a full MythTV frontend.

However, since they are not full MythTV clients, they do not have the full MythTV feature set. These devices simply support playback of videos stored in the MythTV backend, and potentially accessing music and photos. Video playback support varies from device to device, but none support the full capabilities of a MythTV client, such as automatic commercial skipping, bookmarks, and flexible FF/REW playback controls.

UPnP Device reports attempt to better document the capabilities of the various UPnP client options, and show MythTV users what to expect when using them. If you wish to create a new device report use the UPnP Client Template.

With MythTV 0.28 the UPnP code has seen major changes, improved browsing modes, more metadata, artwork for all media, strict UPnP (2014) and DLNA compliance and support for additional UPnP features.
