[mythtv-users] Mythweb Permissions

Hi all,
I'm having ongoing problems with Mythweb, with the same symptoms described
in the earlier thread:

Namely, trying to download any recording file results in the system not
being able to find the file:
1435_20120617012900.mpg does not exist in any recognized storage group
directories for this host.

I figured it must be permissions, but I'm having trouble keeping track of
all the directories that I need to check and tried to trace them through
(snipping everything except for recordings links, for now).  Can someone
tell me if the following looks right?

The mythweb directories (as I understand them!) - are there any others I
should check:

geoff at bertha:/var/lib/mythtv$ ls -la /var/www/mythweb
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 25 Jul  2 20:04 /var/www/mythweb ->
(is this even relevant?)

geoff at bertha:/var/lib/mythtv$ ls -la /var/www/mythweb/data/
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root       26 Jul  3 00:04 recordings ->
As I understand it, I can't change the permissions of this link; doing so
acts on the target.. which is:

geoff at bertha:/var/lib/mythtv$ ls -la /var/lib/mythtv/
drwxrwsrwx  2 mythtv mythtv 4096 May  5 18:05 recordings

The files are actually stored using Storage Groups, in a NAS mounted on
/mnt/nfs/mythtv. BEFORE I mount it:

geoff at bertha:/var/lib/mythtv$ ls -al /mnt/nfs/
drwxrwxrwx  2 mythtv users 4096 May  5 18:45 mythtv

AFTER mounting:
geoff at bertha:/var/lib/mythtv$ ls -al /mnt/nfs/
drwxrwxrwx+ 14 mythtv users 4096 Jun 22 23:32 mythtv

geoff at bertha:/var/lib/mythtv$ ls -al /mnt/nfs/mythtv
drwxrwxrwx+  2 mythtv   users    20480 Jul  3 00:57 recordings

Finally, the file in question (but it behaves the same for all videos):
geoff at bertha:/var/lib/mythtv$ ls -al
-rw-r--r--+ 1 mythtv mythtv 17988312256 Jun 17 05:06

I'm on a combined FE/BE, running Mythbuntu 0.25-fixes.
Any help would be appreciated!
