Frontend setup.  It was added in changeset 5819 ( 
http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/changeset/5819 ), so if you're not running 
SVN, you either need to patch your 0.18 version or upgrade to SVN (all 
SVN disclaimers apply--you should be reading the -dev and -commits list 
to run SVN, some things are currently disabled in SVN, etc.).

Well, the audio won't work.  How the app deals with lack of audio is 
dependent on the app.
