28th June 2009, 04:12 PM
Ok, so i am setting up a box to sit at the tv to use to access all my media files from my main pc. This is so i can watch them on the big screen. I have installed mythbuntu, but i cant for the life of me figure out how to access the shared folders. There are 2 folders with all the files in them that are being shared, can any1 tell me how on earth i am meant to access those files via the mythtv front end? and do i need the backend enabled?

Are the shared files on the backend or another machine? or are you asking if you need to enable the backend on the frontend machine?

Do share then - it may help someone else out. :)
