Interesting, I'm doing almost the same thing with Orb - I have Orb
installed on an XP VM and I mount the Recordings folder on one of my
Mythboxes via SMB. However i can't stream any of my recordings -
They're the default x.264 from an HD-PVR and huge but I haven't
researched root cause yet. I hadn't heard of Air Video but it looks
decent and has a native iPad app - Are the recordings you're
transcoding from an HD-PVR?
