So how to you create the
<DirName>/var/lib/mythtv/remote/recordings/</DirName> # This path
doesn't exist on the main backend??
I can't see how to create a mount point on the master backend that
doesn't exist except on the slave backend. Certainly can't do it with
mythtv-setup unless I'm missing a magic button somewhere.
In my setup I created a path on the slave backend that also existed on
the master backend. So when recordings are being done on the slave
those files get recording in that directory on the slave.
I just can't see how to setup the non-existent directory on the master
that does exist on the slave.
