The requirement is solely that the $HOME/.mythtv directory and/or the 
video directories not use actimeo=0 or noac.  Therefore, just don't 
specify either actimeo or noac, and you'll be fine.

For LiveTV, however, not using actimeo=0 or noac may mean that LiveTV 
fails, so in the past, we've always told users to use actimeo=0 on their 
NFS-mounted recordings directories.
