Not to steer this back on topic or anything, but you can mount cifs shares
inside the XBMC interface... Can MythBox access these mounts? I don't have
XBMC in front of me but I believe you can either do it in the settings -
media section (after setting your SMB stuff in settings - Network and
restarting) or by entering the Videos section and adding a source.
