I've got a netbook running the latest version Plex Media Server. It works great, for the most part.
It's accessible in Showtime through UPnP/DLNA, and for the most part it works fantastic. I'm still amazed that it manages to load a 15Mbps average/40Mbps+ peak bitrate 1080P x264 MKV file served from an external USB 2.0 HD connected to a crappy Intel Atom 1.6Ghz netbook (which is constantly using 100-120% CPU for other purposes) in just a second. Mindbogglingly great work!
However, metadata on TV shows served through UPnP/DLNA doesn't work. It works on all the other UPnP clients I've tried, so it's not a server issue. The metadata also loads if I copy the files directly to the PS3 HDD or access them through USB. Metadata on my movies on the other hand works perfectly over UPnP/DLNA.

A file that's named The.Wire.S01E01.mkv will get the metadata perfectly, no matter what folder it is in.
However if the file is instead organized in a directory structure like this it won't find any metadata:
(The Wire) -> (Season 1) -> "S01E01 - The Target.mkv"
