i was just planning to run a frontend on windows with my videos on my 
linux backends. but i got a new machine at work and it seems like a good 
test case to build head on it. not having a tuner to play with i decided 
to try mythvideo and that is when i started to run into this ":" issue. 
not a long term problem for me, but when i see issues that might cause 
other people problems - i do try to highlight them (either on this list) 
or in trac.

am i correct in thinking that with the merger of mythvideo into mythtv, 
SG will become the only way to get at video files?
