Someone mentioned a patch to Mythtv that would allow it to record to
multiple directories. Wouldn't that in essence solve this problem?
I too am nervous about having all my Mythtv storage under LVM (as
recommended by all the HOWTOs). I was thinking for a while how to mitigate
this. My OS partition is already RAID 1 on two 40Gb disks by I realize doing
this for recordings would be wasteful/overcomplicated.
