OK, OK, I've said it before, I am too stupid to use Linux and MythTV. ;-)
After doing the restore from an image and going back through the front
end settings I see that the default setting is to keep just 1G free on
the partition where the recordings directory is.
Which goes a longway to explaining why I was running out of space, which
caused the 'cannot mount' errors.
I've increased the value to something a little more generous so I hope
that'll fix it.
I'm beginning to realise that a lot more time is spent fiddling than
watching or listening :-D
