I'm a little unclear about the local versus remote part there.
I have a master backend and a slave backend. The drive on each backend is
shared via nfs and mounted on the other. When I started watching some
livetv to test things out, using a tuner on the slave backend it started
recording to the nfs drive. Based on what it says above, shouldn't it have
gone to the local drive first? Or am I not supposed to mount with nfs and
myth can directly access remote filesystems itself?
