I was using xfs on a dedicated backend and it worked well, very fast 
deletes.  I've just moved my storage over to an Infrant ReadyNAS NV with 
4 320gb Seagate 7200.10 drives on their propriety xraid.  It's a little 
pricey but its main use was for backing up my important stuff and as 
that only took up a miniscule portion of the available space I decided 
to use it with mythtv.  The only file system available though is ext3. 
I haven't really noticed much difference with the deletes and .20 is 
supposed to have incremental deletes anyway.  I've pretty much given up 
on archiving to dvd.  It turns out I was making dozens of discs that I 
never watched.  If I get the itch to watch a particular show again I can 
just set it to re-record anyways.  Most shows are on ad nauseum.
