[mythtv-users] Multiple Watch Directories

I've asked about multiple recording directories before
and people give me the "get another computer" or
"write to an SMB/NFS share" thing and it's just not
working. I have three simultaneous streams going
sometimes, with the transcodes that need to happen.
ATAPI isn't even fast enough, really.
I have a question about how truly difficult multiple
recording directories would be to implement.. but
another suggestion came to mind -- multiple watch
You folks already have this thing in place where if
you can't stream it through the backend connection,
you have the thing look in /video or where ever
recordings are supposed to go.. Would it really be
that hard to do a semi-colon separated watch list
where it went through each directory to find the file,
first one that it finds it displays? Maybe even just a
"recorded2" key in the database that it searches after
it searches the first record path? It just seems like
it would be a few extra lines of code.
I really am quite scared of doing it formally. I've
hacked things before to get things to work just for
myself (like the cx25840 driver or the tuner or minor,
minor things like that), but I'm really quite scared
of writing a solid, genuine thing and adding a little
config option in mythtvsetup (if it were just for me,
that's what sql statements are for).
So I'm running this up the flag pole.. Would anyone
else think this is interesting or useful? Would anyone
be willing to do it? Should I test change myself?
