I could only test for previewgen but you are correct. they should have 
still in dev as I sus this out. I can submit patch another if required 
but it is simple.

alternatively we can change the deploy tree so that it has a bin 
directory and get the Fork to automatically add a .exe if missing.

what Ive done is dumped some rows from my linux backend db to the win 
backend db and copied over the recorded files to the win backend too.

Ive also used EventGhost as the lirc replacement and it seems quite good 
and easy to configure. I have a mythtv plugin for that in dev if anyone 
wants it. still a bit manual to set up though.

also as to local files, I presume that will preclude the use of a 
locally accessable videos tree as well as a remote one directly from the 

also islocal is required for the backend to find the files locally if 
the file spec is C:\... etc.
hence why it was done and I believe will still be needed. I was getting 
the backend trying to find a non local file and couldnt. :-)

Ive also noticed that video output rate adaption is not working that 
well and is a bit jerky.
will look into this at some stage too.

the whole reason for this is to play videos and recordings in isolation 
with mythplayer (because I like it better).

also thanks to lawrence for his great buidl script.
