I have no trouble reading native myth NUV files with
the VLC *gasp* windows client.  I stream them from my
backend server across my LAN to it all the time using
no transcoding at all.

   After hunting through the lists and the
documentation this morning, I
am finally posting to the list. Hopefully someone can
help me. Thank
you in advance.

   I have a MythTV machine setup that is running
perfectly, and also well
loaded with scheduled recordings. I would like to take
recordings with
me on the road, but I am at a loss as to how to do
this without
negatively impacting performance on my MythTV machine
when using
something like nuvexport. I understand with the native
format that
MythTV stores video in that I am forced to re-encode
the video to be
able to play it in apps like Video Lan Client. What I
want to be able
to do is re-encode the video on my dual celeron
workstation instead of
on the MythTV machine. Is this possible?

   Also, the architecture of the MythTV system is a
little vague in the
documentation. I am at a loss to understand what the
benefit is to
having multiple backends/frontends. Is there a general
overview someplace? Also, it would be good to
understand what is
required to setup multiple backends/frontends.
