    Can I use mediatomb with mythtv to serve the media (tv recordings, video, music & photos). Will mediatomb be able to get the metadata for the tv recording since mythtv uses numeric naming? I\'m looking to use this product with android devices.

    MythTV has its own built in uPnP Server to serve Recordings, etc. It works really well. However, there is a MythTV script that works with the database to create symlinks from the numerical filenames to the Recording Titles. Unless you are using a Digital Tuner (HDHomeRun, etc), your recordings might be in NUV Format instead of MPG Format. I've never tried to serve one of these files via MediaTomb. You may need to enable a transcoder to run nuvexport, etc to obtain a usable format that can be served via MediaTomb to your media player.
