i reading over the irc log from last night i came across the reference 
by mike to http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/443158#443158

i was not aware of this. i suspect that not many people are.
having storage for recordings and videos on both my master backend and a 
slave backend i had developed a strategy for working out where stuff was:

i have a master backend (called sanfrancisco) and a slave backend 
(called newyork)

on the MBE i have two mount points /myth and /myth2 and within them i have


on the SBE i have two mount points /myth and /myth2 and within them i have


i also have the two disks cross mounted on both the machines with NFS. 
this was important in the days before SG

i suppose my question is really; do the leaves of the tree, recordings 
and videos in my case, have to be mount points for mike's strategy to 
work? i realy hope not.

is the above quoted post on the wiki? it certainly should be.
