Check to make sure that the mount location on the remote FE is the
same location where the files are stored on the BE (i.e.
/var/lib/mythtv/videos [I think that is the default, at least on
Ubuntu] on both systems).  Also, make sure you have set the video
directory correctly under Setup/Media Settings/Video Settings/General
Settings (that is from memory, so it may not be exactly right).  Those
two things trip up a lot of people.
