If I remember correctly, its on the first (general) settings page in
mythtv-setup. Are you aware that with ext3 your maximum file size is
4Gb and trying to record a file larger than that will cause a crash? You
might want to think about switching your recording partition to XFS or
another large file enabled filesystem.
