I'm not sure if it's relevent (I use NFS on NetBSD, and set it up by hand so
it may be slightly different.) but in the nfs configuration you can specify
an override to use for the user/group access.
Have a look in /etc/exports on the NFS server.
Find the lines that exports your storage directories and try adding:
This should map any and all incoming NFS requests for that mount to the
user/group you specify (in this case mythtv/users)
If it's just failing for myth and working for other things, and/or you need
to be able to support more than one user/group combo there's a '-maproot'
option that works in the same way, but only for incoming connections from
root. As you are writing everything as root this option will probably do
what you want too.
