It's worth noting that yes, you can turn off your NFS mounts and set
up storage groups and it will work as stated above-- but you will need
to scan after you do this, and your metadata will be reset.  This
isn't too big a deal as most people moving to .22 will want to take
advantage of the new metadata sources/images.  Just have a little time
blocked out to get the posters/fanart/metadata restored.  (Highlight

Do please read the MythVideo .22 Transition Guide in the wiki, as it
covers the above and more.

Good to hear.  If you get a chance and it is very simple, feel free to
post a howto here or on the wiki.
