Can you expand on that at all?  I am running the latest version of  
mythtv, 20.2.  But in the mythtv-setup menu I am only seeing  
"Directory to hold recordings", which is under the General menu.
I am not seeing "storage groups" listed under any other of mythtv- 
setup menu's.

The only place I see LiveTV specific options is in  Mythtv >  
Utilities/Setup > Setup > TV Settings > Recording Profiles > MPEG-2  
Encoders > Live TV.  But still no options for storage groups or
