Relevant line in /etc/exports
Relevant line in /etc/fstab (was identical on both backend and frontend
- at least until I disabled the mount on frontend)
192.168.1.3:/home/mythtv/data/recordings /storage/recordings nfs
I had, of course, done a lot of searching for various NFS mount options
(and read a lot of documentation) without finding anything that seemed
promising. Like I said, simply streaming from the backend solves the
problem (and I'm OK with that solution), I'd just think it'd be nice to
figure out exactly what's going on.
