I've been wrestling a similar problem with a new frontend as well.  
Everything works fine after I mounted the backends media directory into 
the same place on the frontend as it is on the backend.  Here's the 
issue, the backend is usually off, it uses nvram to wake-up record then 
goes back off.  If I turn on the frontend it uses wake-on lan to wake 
the backend, that works 80% of the time.  Problems is that the  
directory that's mapped that contains all the media (videos, music, 
games, etc) doesn't get mapped during the frontend bootup, because the 
backend has not completely started yet.  So I'll either have to ssh in 
and mount it manually, or restart the frontend.  Any suggestions on how 
to have the mount command executed after the backend is known to be 
fully operational (frontend connected to backend), or try to mount in 
some interval until it does get mounted?  The backend only takes about 
30 seconds to get up.  I was planning to write a script of some sort, 
just hadn't gotten around to it yet.  Hopefully someone has had a 
similar issue and has found a solution.
