I've switched my frontend as suggested for streaming, and files now 
playback flawlessly (it used to skip a lot before) from the master (as 
that is what I have mounted under RecordFilePrefix) but anything from my 
slave (mostly LiveTV) is unwatchable via streaming. I can't believe it 
is a hardware issue, this is SDTV from a PVR250, frontend is a P4 2.9, 
1GB RAM, Nvidia 6200GT, 1000BT NIC.

So my question is, how do I get both master and slave recordings to be 
served to a remote frontend via NFS and not streamed? Or how can I debug 
why streaming does not work?
