I believe MythDVD stores the files in the MythVideo folder after it is 
done.  If you put this folder on a separate drive from your TV 
recordings, you have accomplished your goal.  And since MythVideo search 
subfolders for content if you have existing video content you don't want 
on that drive, mount a different drive as a subfolder and you can store 
other content there apart from your DVD rips.
