[mythtv-users] DVD iso image in SG does not play on remote frontend

Hi:  I have several DVDs created by MythArchive and now conveniently 
storable (via K3B) as iso images.  These have played as Videos on FE/BE 
systems, but I now have a firestick 4K as a remote frontend, and on that 
they don't play.  I think it's not a firestick-specific problem.

I think the problem could be in the SG addressing.  On my main box the 
log shows "DVDRB: Opened DVD device at myth://Videos@hpbox/whatever.iso"
where hpbox is the (boring) 'Master Backend Name' from mythtv-setup.

The firestick log shows that it is using the same form; but it doesn't 
work.  It was set up to use the Primary IP Address (192.168.1.something) 
and the 'name' option seemed not to work there.

Any insights?
