This behavior was broken for quite a while and has recently been restored.  
The frontend will attempt to play directly from a file directly from the 
filesystem if it exists.  I'm not sure how it checks for this, but from your 
post it seems that it might simply be checking for existence of the directory 
rather than the actual file.  If so, you could simply remove the 
/var/lib/mythtv directory if you really don't want to maintain the NFS mount.
