Oh yes, look at the logs, what a concept D'oh!  Should have thought of

/var/lib/mythtv/recordings/nfslockfile.lock: Permission denied
Unable to open lockfile!
Be sure that '/var/lib/mythtv/recordings' exists and that both 
the directory and that file are writeable by this user.

It turns out that I didn't change the owner of the lockfile to mythtv.

Works great now.
