Unmount the NFS directory and try it again. Either that or from the 
MythWiki page http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Optimizing_Performance:

      Disable file attribute caching

If you are using NFS 
<http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php?title=NFS&action=edit>, please 
remount your video partition with the "-o actimeo=0" option which will 
disable this attribute caching and allow the frontend to see updates 
from the backend quicker.

It should work after doing one of the above.
