There is a setting that determines whether an automatic scan is
undertaken. Without a mythbox in front of me I can't tell you how to get
to the option, but it is in setup somewhere.
However each time you scan, either manually or automatically, every
video file in your video directory, and all subdirectories of it, are
going to be put in the database, and all those that have disappeared
will be removed from the database.
I don't believe that the default is to have the mythvideo directory
pointing to the same place as the recordings directory. It sounds as if
you have done so, and therefore all of your recordings are added to your
videos database. You therefore can presumably watch them via myth's
"watch recorded show" menu or mythvideo's "watch video" menu.
