That & is the source of all your issues. Essentially its running
nuvexport in the background from the actual script, so the script
instantlly finishes and the mythbackend marks it as successful as no
error code was returned.

Also, another thing that may bite you is that nuvexport has issues
running from the backend, as theres no controlling terminal and shell
enviroment that nuvexport can use to startup the UI (even though the
arguments will skip it).
