You can even move files between storage groups without updating the
database.  If the recording file is not found in the proper Storage Group's
directories, then Myth will look in the Default Storage Group's directories,
and then it will look in all Storage Group directories.  So you can move
files around into any valid directory that is defined in any Storage Group
and Myth will be able to find those files.
