If you're running the SVN development version then yes, you can define
multiple storage groups for recordings on different drives.  If you're
running the stable version then no, mythtv will only search one
location.  You could of course replace your recordings with symbolic
links to files stored elsewhere, and I think there are scripts around
that will let you do that.

> What about MythMusic
Yes, mythmusic will search for  subdirectories on remote drives.

> and MythGallery?
so will mythgallery
