No, there is an excess setting you added. If the laptop doesn't
have a capture card, you should not have run mythtv-setup and
set a prefix path for that host. IOW The frontend should have only
complained as you describe if it found a RecordFilePrefix of
"/mnt/store" for the laptop hostname in the settings table.
