The standard practice is to mount shared storage via NFS or SMB from the 
backend (where all your storage is) to the same mount point on all the 
frontend systems.  Since Myth Video doesn't "record", I'm not sure what 
you're referring to about missing recordings.  You should *not* point 
your Myth Video at your TV recording folder.  That is not what it is 
designed for.
