I managed to set up a permanent shared folder in Mythbuntu. Its mounted as /mnt/windows_share, and I am able to access it in Thunar File Manager

In 'windows_share' there is a subfolder called 'files' which has the media files in it

So in the MythTV settings Ive entered "/mnt/windows_share/files

But when I navigate to there in the Video menu, it says there's no files

(there's actually about 20 AVI's)

What gives? How come Thunar can see them but MythTV cant?

I don't know much about MythTV,but does it support .avi format? Or have to download codec for it first?

After you changed the path to your videos in MythTV, did you then use the Video Manager to re-read your files? I think it's in setup > video > video manager....

I think all you're missing is to use the interface and your keyboard and have the video manager update the contents....
