Good idea. I didn't have any untranscoded recordings, so I set last night's 
to not transcode and will check this tonight.

What I did do was install the Mini Speedtest from www.speedtest.net on my 
backend. Based just on that, my wireless laptop sees a 30mbit connection, 
and the wired backend sees 90mbit.

Well based on the speedtest that's not my problem. In any acse remember, the 
machine with the slower connection is the one that actually WORKS. :-)
