[mythtv-users] Remote Mythfrontend Problem

Hi David,

Is there a way to tell that it is streaming and not accessing the files
The only thing I've got is to wait for a RingBuf error to appear in the logs
and see whether it is accessing the file through the folder or by IP.

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.
