Can you provide an example of a videometadata record where you think
this occurs?  I can't see how that would be possible.  An item is
determined as being hosted in a Storage Group by it having a value in
"Host."  That is the only way a Myth URL can be built for an image, as
both the host and the filename are necessary to build one.  But if the
host value is filled, then a Myth URL will be built for anything in
the filename field, which would break playback of anything with a
local path.  What you describe should be impossible.
