The best we can figure is some broken blend of local folders, Storage
Groups, and file browse mode. Since UPnP is working, you MUST have
local folders defined on the master backend, which means the frontend
located on the master backend is getting a blend of content from both.
On the other hand, your remote frontends running their own scans in file
browse mode will only have access to the content it can pull from the
master backend, and whatever is found in the local paths, but not the
storage group definitions, will not be visible.
Your best option is to go through every frontend, unset every local
folder definition, remove the Videos storage groups, and rescan to flush
all your existing and seemingly broken database data out. Add storage
group paths to all your content on the backend, and rescan. Add the
same folders to the local paths on the master backend only. MythVideo
should see the duplicate paths and ignore them, while the UPnP server
will go off and do its own thing. Make sure file browse mode is
