found the setting, was under playback.
when you enable this setting it doesn't take effect immediately,
frontend needs to be restarted for it to work.
once checked, playback is smooth and i don't need to dismount the nfs share.

but i suspect this will cause problems for mythvideo too and that may
be harder to solve than a simple checkbox.
