SagTV v9 Linux permissions

I have SageTV installed on three systems. Two linux, one Win 7.

On one linux system, call it System A, I can view live TV with the miniclient. I can view live TV from the server on the Win 7 system, and also from System B.

On System B, I can't see my own server's output but can watch System A and the win7 box. I just get a black screen with a revolving arrow. I believe the server is OK because I can watch the recorded files with ffmpeg, just not live TV with the miniclient., except from another system.

One difference between the systems is that on System B, /var/media/tv is a mounted ext4 directory. On System A (the working one), /var/media/tv is a symbolic link to an NTFS filesystem on a separate drive, a relic of dual-booting with windows. I'm thinking that ext4 file permissions are preventing the miniclient from reading a file.

Both Linux machines are running from

Both are HVR-1600's, but possibly different models, yet the recordings of both are fine.

What file permissions are recommended? I think that may be what the problem is.

System A is a Phenom II X6. System B is a Ryzen 2700X.
