What's your intent in splitting them out like this?  Are you planning on
viewing the recordings external to Mythtv?

A better method might be to use symlinks.  Have your userjob move & rename
the file to whatever folder and create a symlink from your recording
directory to the new file.  There's an option in the settings to MythTv
follow links.  I'd assume this would delete the linked file not just the
link when you do a delete from within Myth.

If you get creative with the mysql you could even have it rename based on
episode title, and create a new directory for a show if necessary.
