The ultimate goal is to be able to watch TV on a Playstation 3.

Since Tvheadend stores it's files as matroska files, you should be able to use any suitable uPnP/DLNA server such as uShare, MediaTomb or TwonkyMedia to serve the recorded files. Simply set up those servers, and add the recording directory as a media source.
Tvheadend could have support added for DLNA exposure of live-channels, by announcing the relevant RTSP streams. Afaik, DLNA clients are supposed to support RTSP delivery, so this doesn't need to wait for HTTP streaming. But this would require the use of a DLNA capable library, which I assume would be a significant addition to the project so will take a while.

Some investigation produces the following.
The PS3 supports DLNA only not generic negotiable upnp-AV. DLNA is actually a strict limit on what formats are accepted. So that generic devices can all talk the same set of formats.
While RTSP is considered for a future transport, the current standard DLNA transport is HTTP. So this is blocking on #66
Sending of a TS stream should be within the accepted formats for DLNA.
(changing title to reflect that it's DLNA support, not simply upnp-AV)
