I thought you were running into a bug I'd recently noticed (but
haven't checked SVN to see if it's there yet). I had two directories
(call them dir1 and dir2) on my slave backend that, with a third
directory on another server, comprise my Default storage group. When I
manually moved all the recordings from dir1 to dir2 for miscellaneous
reasons, I noticed that MythTV would *not* record to the now-empty
directory (except nfslockfile.lock) until I primed it, if you will, by
moving some recordings back to it.

Then I read this. Not sure how recordings manually added to the
directory might or might not change the situation that causes the bug
I noticed. In any case, try moving some "real" MythTV recordings back
into the directory and see if that helps.
