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.
