Thanks, Peter. I'm still a little wary of what activating another
frontend might do to my databases, but that's an 'obvious' question. If
no other replies appear I'll try it. I was hoping that Storage Groups
and myth protocol might cause a lightbulb moment somewhere.
And of course it does: a wiki... Lots and lots and lots of it :-)
The mytharchive bit was just code for 'unencrypted' and 'having a menu,'
I guess. Other players play the iso files although the menu may not
always work perfectly.
