problem on that computer (computer1). But physically going up to the box
running mythtv (fe/be box) I cannot watch the videos. Ill check the
playback profiles. Mythfrontend log doesnt show anything about videos
except that I have not setup any SG path. Defaulting to /mnt/store which
is ok. I dont see that as an error that would cause this. I have a link
from /var/lib/mythvideo to my nfs server.
Thanks for your reply!
