Yes, the back end has the actual files at /var/lib/mythvideo and the
front end has them nfs mounted at /var/lib/mythvideo.

This is how I export them:
/var/lib/mythvideo 192.168.10.222(ro,sync) 192.168.10.121(ro,sync)
And this is how I mount them:
192.168.10.120:/var/lib/mythvideo /var/lib/mythvideo nfs hard,intr

I am sure it is because I see the file in the video manager. I see this
for both mythfrontends. The one on the same machine as the back end and
the one on the remote machine with the videos nfs mounted.
It's when I go to play the videos I see nothing on the remote machine.
The machine that runs mythfrontend local to the mythbackend plays back
the videos just fine.
1) Hummm, if I ever ran a mythbackend unconfigured on the remote machine
would I run a chance of confusing the mythfrontend that is now running
on the remote machine?
2) I see where the user ID is the same for the mythtv logins for the
mythbackend server machine and the remote mythfrontend client machine.
However, the group ID is different. Could that cause the problem?
3) This setup was working, one of the recent changes was a switch from
the default mplayer to Internal player for videos. Any reason to
suspect that might be the cause?
...thanks guys for your help.
