I thought that JFS was grasping at straws.
I'm beginning to think that it has something to do with nfs. Do I have to
sent up a network share?
$ ls -l /video
> total 186936

Perhaps it has something to do with udev or hotplug. During the setup, the
directory I use for store recorded content is /video. /video is on it's own
300 gig drive with a swap partition.
$ cat /etc/fstab
LABEL=/1 / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot1 /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
LABEL=/music /music jfs defaults 1 2
proc /proc proc defaults 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
LABEL=/video /video jfs defaults 1 2
LABEL=SWAP-pdc_dfjhah swap swap defaults 0 0
LABEL=SWAP-hda3 swap swap defaults 0 0
LABEL=SWAP-hdd1 swap swap defaults 0 0
Perhaps udev is setting the /video partition/drive permissions so that the
remote FE does not have access.
