Just copy the .mythtv directory and ensure that everything in it is
readable by the new user.

First, you should really look into LVM as it'll make any future
upgrades a lot easier. Second, after you move the files simply tell
myth the new directory name for storing recordings and it'll pick them
up and use them. Note: You can't have some recordings in one dir and
others in another.
