i think samba only supports a 2gig file size.  newer versions of nfs
should be able to get around the 2gig limit but you may need a mount
option to force to use nfsv3 i think.

in any case, why are you mounting the recorded stuff on the FE?  why
not just let myth do what it does best and stream the files.  seems
the easiest solution to me.
