This is my suggestion as well.

Stay away from LVM, as there is no real benefit to using it, and
plenty of drawbacks.  Instead I would:

-Install new drive (properly on /srv/mythtv/recordings2... /var/lib is
not the correct place for it if you read LFHS)
-use myth_archive_job.pl periodically
-EVENTUALLY install 0.21 (once it's released) and get recording
groups, which is what you were somewhat simulating with
