Thank you for clarifying this. I don't use MythMusic or MythVideo at
this time. I do use mythgallery so will need to setup NFS for that.
I am also considering setting up NFS for the recordings directory since
I have a TB of space on the master backend system.
As I understand this now the NFS for recordings is not required but
allows one to keep all the recordings on one system.
