After a bit of a time away from Myth I've been revisiting my outstanding 
issues - this is one of them.  If I scan for videos on the backend (and 
subsequently get them), then do the same on the remote front end, I get 
the above.  Once they're gone and I rescan on the frontend, I can see 
this in the logs:

2010-02-22 10:01:19.787 buildFileList directory = 
myth://Videos@myth1/data/Videos/
2010-02-22 10:01:19.787 MythVideo::ScanVideoDirectory Scanning Group 
(myth://Videos@myth1/data/Videos/)
2010-02-22 10:01:19.794 buildFileList directory = 
myth://Videos@myth1/var/lib/mythtv/videos/
2010-02-22 10:01:19.794 MythVideo::ScanVideoDirectory Scanning Group 
(myth://Videos@myth1/var/lib/mythtv/videos/)

So it appears to be attempting to scan both directories in my storage 
group - it just doesn't find anything.

I'm on mythbuntu 9.10 and 0.22-fixes.  Any help appreciated!

Thanks,
James.
