Mythweb doesn't do any transcoding or anything like that.  The asx  
file is just contains a reference to download the recording from  
mythweb, which basically lets you watch while you download vs waiting  
for the download to finish before watching, if you just clicked the  
download link.

Odd.  Use firefox?  The zero-byte thumbnails show up as black squares  
for me.
