I have a recent mythbuntu installed (version 9.10 I think : 2.6.33-020633rc8-generic) on a box in my living room and I'd like to buy a DLNA/uPNP enabled TV to put in the kitchen. I'd prefer to avoid additional transcoding if possible. I've read that some people have had some problems getting these to communicate with mythbuntu. Does anyone know which brands or TVs are most suitable? I think it would be worth starting a wiki page listing what successes and failures people have had with various TVs/brands.

Do what I did...take your computer to the store with you and try out all the tv's you want. The store had no problem with me doing this since I was going to buy something before I left.

It has been since 2007 when I bought my last tv. I got a LG 42" lcd.
