Nagging problem in log files.

Continue to see these errors -

2010-11-29 18:30:04.016 ProgramInfo(1321_20101129183000.mpg), Error:
GetPlaybackURL: '1321_20101129183000.mpg' should be local, but it can
not be found.

I know everybody always talks about broken storage groups, but I can't
see anything wrong with them.  Actually they are the defaults with the
exception of three added.

Here is what is taken directly from mysql -

Default /var/lib/mythtv/recordings/ Default
Default /var/lib/mythtv/xen/recordings/ Added
Videos /var/lib/mythtv/videos/ Default
Fanart /var/lib/mythtv/fanart/ Default
Trailers /var/lib/mythtv/trailers/ Default
Coverart /var/lib/mythtv/coverart/ Default
Screenshots /var/lib/mythtv/screenshots/ Default
Banners /var/lib/mythtv/banners/ Default
DB Backups /var/lib/mythtv/db_backups/ Default
LiveTV /var/lib/mythtv/livetv/ Default
PBS /var/lib/mythtv/pbs/ Added
Music videos /var/lib/mythtv/music.videos/ Added

How does mythtv look for these?  Does it use `locate` by any chance?
