All recordings in MythTV must be in the recordings directory.  
Therefore, if you want to keep it elsewhere, you'll need to create a 
link in your recordings directory.  The easiest way to do this is to 
give the link the same name as the original file and rename the file in 
the other location to something more easily recognized.

Note, also, that if you do any commercial cutting or transcoding, you'll 
need to rebuild the seektable with

mythcommflag --rebuild -f <name of link in recordings directory>
