That means that it's not streaming from the backend.

You don't need your backend recording directory mounted on a remote
frontend to watch Recorded TV or LiveTV.

I guess you may need to restart the backend and/or the frontend to
force it to stream, if the recordings were previously available via a
local mount point.

This look a promising avenue of exploration to me.
