I had this problem as well. You need to have the recordings directory
mounted on the remote machine, and it has to be readable/writable to
the user running nuvexport.

You also need to set this up on the MySQL server with a command like:
INSERT INTO settings VALUES ('RecordFilePrefix', '/mnt/recordings', 'mythfe1')

The location '/mnt/recordings' is the locally mounted recordings
directory on the remote machine; the 'mythbe1' is the host name of the
remote machine.

This should let you run nuvexport jobs on your remote machine.
