I'm using B-rad's wdlxtv-live-0.2.2.1 and can successfully stream NFS on the Live from my computer using CIFS Interceptor.

Can I go the other way, and EXPORT an NFS share from the Live's harddrive, so I can watch videos my WDTV-1?

i use debian-wdlxtv for this along with unfs3 or nfs-user-server (both user space coz kernel is missing nfs support). the problem is low performance, but maybe it's my setup.

I am now using DEBIAN_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.2.2.1 as well, and installed this:
# apt-get install nfs-kernel-server nfs-common portmap

Then saved the following in /conf/exports (WDTV-Live with IP of 192.168.0.88):
/tmp/media/usb/USB1/930621f5-8c96-4b7e-bd5b-3f8ca459bdd8 192.168.0.66(rw,async)

And in my net.mounts (WDTV with IP of 192.168.0.66):
xmount 192.168.0.88:/live-media Live nfs

I think my net.mounts file is fine, as I can see my nfs shares from the ubuntu computer fine (defined similar to the xmount above).

Rebooted both, and got nothing.  I am very new to Linux, so go ahead an jab at me if I did something stupid, as long as you relay some tips as well.  Thanks.

like i said kernel is missing nfs support so u can;t use nfs-kernel-server. remove nfs-kernel-server and use unfs3 which is NFSv3 server in user space. also your xmount line is bad, u should use something like this

xmount 192.168.0.88:/tmp/media/usb/USB1/930621f5-8c96-4b7e-bd5b-3f8ca459bdd8 Live nfs
