An SMB network share is a share hosted on another server, using a program
called Samba. You need to install and configure Samba on your Myth server to
share out the video directory, and then configure XBMCmythtv to connect to
that share. Setting up Samba shares is a bit beyond the scope of this
mailing list, but there is a wealth of information that can be found via a
Google search on how to set up Samba. Hope this helps.
