Just to make sure the question (as I read it =) is answered.
once you create another group as Chris suggests, you can
select it from the recording options pages. If you created a
"Star Trek" SG, you could go to your Recording Priorities
page in mythfrontend, find Star Trek related titles then
press "I" or Enter for the options page. Go to "Storage
Options" and set the third line to:

   Store in the "Star Trek" recording group

Any new recordings for this rule will try to write to a
directory of the "Star Trek" Storage Groups. If, however,
it records on a slave that doesn't have a directory for
the ST SG, the recording would be written to a directory
of the Default group (rather than failing =).
