I am told that in 0.22 mythvideo will stream in the same way as
recordings, and there will be no need for all this mounting. I hope
BTW 802.11g seems OK for cifs mounted mythvideo at SD data rates.
There is the odd glitch and I am looking forward to completing my
wiring and getting ethernet speeds. (Also we have reinforced concrete
walls which aren't that great for wireless. Actually they aren't that
great for running wires either!)
