Caveat:  I have not been following this thread very closely.

Are you doing the scans for new video's on the backend that owns the 
"Storage Group" or another machine?

Reason I ask this is, I have all storage on the master backend, as well 
as all the storage groups, the FE, mount the directory structure via 
NFS.  If I perform a scan for new videos on the MBE, all the videos are 
marked as "owned" by the MBE (host column in videometadata table), and 
metadata populates properly.  If I then run a scan on a remote FE, all 
the videos are updated as being "owned" by the remote frontend, and 
metadata does not populate very well.
