The key designator is remote vs. local. In the case where all disks are in
the same system attached to the motherboard, it will not leave one empty but
balance the recordings (this is how my system works). In the case of the
OP, some of his disks were network mounted, and Myth considers network
mounted storage lower priority than direct attached disks resulting in the
confusion he had.

In the case of network disks, it has to do with network I/O from, for
example, multiple HD recordings + multiple commflag operations that could
seriously degrade a network and/or result in bad recordings.
