That is a shame... I have really been enjoying how fast the storage
groups were (scanning for new files and moving around etc). Will the
lirc work with mythavtest? I'll look through the wiki.
Actually, my fix for this so far has been to transcode the video to xvid.
I think I would prefer to fix the odd video rather than switch back to NFS
and local file paths.
If there is an issue though, it would be nice to at least log it so it can be
fixed at some point. Is there anything you would want me to run to
give the correct debug info?
