 i tried to check "always stream recordings from the backend"
 which i thought would have the backend make accessing
 the files and streaming it to the frontend - nevertheless i get the
 output (mythfrontend)

 2009-05-25 22:51:11.597 ProgramInfo, Error: GetPlaybackURL:
 '17405_20090521210500.mpg' should be local, but it can not be found.

 so it looks like the setting has no effect for me, because the frontend
 still wants to access it. the file has permissions 600 due to another bug
 and is owned by the user "mythtv" who also runs the backend. frontend is
 run by another user, both on the same machine. debian x86_64. changing
 permission to 644 allows the frontend to play the file - but this does not
 look like it's being streaming.
