actually, i know for sure that in mythvideo you can define more than
one path to look for media, just seperate them by a ":" i think.  not
sure about mythmusic though as i don't use it.  so, you're not limited
to either local or nfs or even one file server.  i know that my
roommates and i both have fileservers and we have all the content show
up in mythvideo by coordinating our mount points.
