You should check out the uPnP stuff, the advantage over exporting the
myth recordings directly is that the myth file names are all
<channel>_<timestamp>.<extension> format, and all in one big directory.
With the djmount service, you have a full directory tree of
Recordings/{All Recordings,By Channel,By Date,By Genre,By Group, By
Title}/ etc, some sample 'ls' output from my server is below.  It makes
it a lot more accessible to people that aren't as familiar with the myth

If this is exported to a web browser that has file indexing turned on,
then the whole thing is dynamic and very intuitive, much more so than
just exporting the raw mythtv recordings directory.
