Can't really help you there. I have a Buffalo Linktheater networked DVDPlayer, 
which isn't small.

Not sure about pkgsrc. The greater community of networked DVD players seem to 
use "wizd". I wrote my own for the hell of it, called "llink". The companies 
have their own too, PCcast, etc, they are usually java and Windows only.

Now these are media streamers which have UPnP discovery in them, but they are 
probably not 100% UPnP? I don't mind adding code if there are bits missing to be 
fully compliant.
