I can cope fine with either frame-number or time-index, though 
 frame-number of course will be more exact.

I think it's going to be just finding a whole uninterrupted hour of 
 staring at an strace of mythcommflag and the DB.

NFS instead of SMB, because no Windos anywhere, but yes otherwise.

DLNA, now that I've read the overview on Wikipedia, sounds interesting, 
 though - I always thought it was just a different name for UPnP, and 
 that that was purely for clients requesting port-forwards on NAT 
 gateways. I'll have to read up on that, because it sounds as though it 
 might solve a whole bunch of other problems.
 Thanks for pointing this out to me!
