Thanks for the suggestion, but this doesn't seem to be the case.  I 
copied the nuv to an SMB share that I have mounted for Videos, went into 
videos, same bad results.  I renamed it to avi, and used mplayer for 
playback which worked flawlessly.  I even copied the file to the local 
directory, again same.  Basically the internal player is the one having 
the trouble, regardless of location.  *Shrug*.  I'll give it a shot 
anyways, but I don't mount the Recordings directory on my frontend.
