Is it possible to run mytharchive on a non backend machine.  I've got
a 3.0ghz P4 that I would like to utilize for this.   My backend
(Athlon XP 2400)
is overworked as it is.   I have mythfrontend already running on the P4 with
the recordings and archive work dir nfs exported.  I am getting these

I think it is not getting the information it needs from the database.  If I
change the mydata.xml file so the filename is  explicitly stated with the
absolute path,:

Is what I am trying to achieve even possible?
