MythTV Upnp Samsung TV (AllPlay)

So I finally got MythTV running on my QNAP and tried to connect to the Upnp MythTV service but this just kept failing. Turns out Samsung TV’s send an extra ‘/’ in the POST request – DOH!!

So the hack for mythtv to handle this is here

So I edited my libs/libmythupnp/httprequest.cpp in the mythtv-0.26.0 source on my QNAP. Not wanting to recompile the entire application, I just did:
cd mythtv0.26.0-src
cd libs/libmythupnp/
make install

The restarted MythTV, and voila! Upnp is now working on the samsung TV’s!
