Further to the above. I just checked a recording which is showing as
in progress on the frontend, and when I try to play it I am told the
recording is not yet available. When I look at the report in the
backend log I see:-

2009-12-27 21:30:12.251 ProgramInfo, Error: GetPlaybackURL:
'1002_20091227210000.mpg' should be local, but it can not be found.
2009-12-27 21:30:12.299 ProgramInfo, Error: GetPlaybackURL:
'1002_20091227210000.mpg' should be local, but it can not be found.

And the frontend:

2009-12-27 21:30:12.378 PlaybackBox::play(): Error,
myth://192.168.1.6:6543/1002_20091227210000.mpg file not found

I'm assuming this was probably the cause of troubles earlier.
