This is true. I implemented HTTP 206 (Partial Download) support in PHP
on both the Asterisk, and MythTV iPhone projects. So the binary file
reads, mime types, etc, are handled by the PHP.  I have not tied that
in on this project yet. That being said, apache also implements HTTP
206 so I'm not exactly sure why its not working for you unless your
apache is mishandling that or the mime types.
