[mythtv-users] mythweb thumbnail/streaming issue

I am using SVN version 15624.

I have 1 master backend and 1 slave backend/frontend with mythweb  
running on the master backend.
I have seen similar issues in the mailing list archives but not this  
specific issue.

So in mythweb when i go to the "Recorded Programs" tab, all of my  
recorded programs from
both backends show up properly with thumbnails.  My issue is when I  
click on one of the programs
recorded on the slave backend to bring up the "Program Detail" page.   
When I do this I get
no thumbnail and a 0 byte file is created in the mythweb cache  
directory.  looking at the page
source i see this:

<hr><p><b>Error</b> at /var/www/html/mythweb/modules/tv/includes/ 
objects/Program.php, line 583:<br />file_get_contents(;StartTime=2008-01-28T12:00:00&amp;Height=260&amp;Width=320&amp;SecsIn=150 
) [<a href='function.file-get-contents'>function.file-get-contents</ 
a>]: failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.0 404 Not Found
</p> is the master backend not the slave backend.   it seems  
like it should be using
the slave backend ip address when calling the GetPreviewImage script(i  
can successfully create/transfer
the png from the cli using wget and url string above, just changed the  
ip address to the slave backend).  also
when i try to direct download or stream via asx i get the following  

1161_20080128120000.mpg does not exist in any recognized storage group  
directories for this host.

this used to work and Im not sure whats changed or where else to  
look.  the fact that the thumbnails get
created/transferred in the Recorded programs page but not in the  
Program Details page is very baffling.
I have confirmed the IP addresses in mythtv-setup on both  
machines...any ideas?
