[mythtv-users] MythTV, seeking ahead / behind, NFS,
and bandwidth usage

I had this same problem when I created a frontend system and connected it to
my masterbackend system. I found that my settings in myth were the problem. I
have a NFS share created on my masterbackend and mounted it to /mnt/store on
my frontend. I had to run mythsetup on the frontend and change the "IP
address for <frontend hostname>" to my frontend's ip address and "Master
server ip address" to the masterbackend's ip address. I also changed the
"Directory to hold recordings" setting to point to my mounted NFS share,
"/mnt/store". Once I made these changes I no longer had the seek delays that
I had been experiencing. I am streaming my video from the backend to the
frontend using wireless-g (54Mbps - approx.).
Hope this helps.
