What is the result of this SQL select statement:

select * from settings where value = 'RecordFilePrefix';

Also, how do you have the recordings directory mounted? (on what

If this is happening it is because Myth doesn't think that the
directory is shared, the questions I asked above might yield an answer
as to why.

Each backend should have it's own RecordFilePrefix entry, even if they
are pointing to the same directory.
