That will work, and I'm glad you've managed to get further, but you shouldn't 
really have had to do that. Giving world read/write/execute permissions leaves a 
security hole that someone might find.

In my case, my mounts are /mnt/<hostname>/myth<n> (with a /video subdirectory on 
the drives), and the permissions are 775 for user mythtv, group video (to which 
the users also belong).
