That's good to hear, I'll try that option then.  Any advice on block sizes to 
use, or other options?

Not really an option at the moment, I think, as the file-server isn't running 
mythtv-backend and I'm trying to isolate all problems on the one myth node 
before expanding it across the network.  I'll give it a go if everything else 
fails, but bragi would still need to be able to record directly to NFS from 
its own tuner, so large file transfers are still an issue.

Thanks for your help,
