Yes, you have to mount the directories.  Mythmusic and mythvideo don't
stream using the myth protocol.

Subject: [mythtv-users] Frontend only - no videos?

I've almost got a remote frontend only machine working.

I can watch live tv and watch recorded programs.  I am unable 
to watch videos, can't listen to music nor can I see pictures.

The documentation is somewhat sparse on how to accomplish 
this.  I have a frontend running on the same machine as the 
backend, so that's no problem - it works.  Do I need to nfsmount 
the video, music and picture directory on the frontend?  I thought 
the myth protocol would take care of that.  I have tried putting 
in the same path to those directories in the remote frontend 
as is in the "local" frontend and still can't see them.  I can 
nfsmount the directories and get access to them that way, 
but is that the right way to do this?
