I've done some more digging on this problem.  I have Samba setup on my 
mythbackend and can map to the recordings drive with two separate 
Windows XP boxes.  I've tried opening the *.mpg files recorded by Myth 
with both VLC and PowerDVD.  There is no audio with either player on 
either box.  However I do get audio when using MythTV Player 0.50 for 
Windows on both boxes and other audio is fine on the Windows boxes.  As 
I recall, I used to be able to play these mpegs on Windows with these 

So nuvexport has nothing at all to do with the audio problems.  It seems 
I can no longer play MythTV recordings on Windows.  Has the audio 
encoding been changed?  What codec is used with recordings taken from a 
Hauppauge PVR 250?
