I don't know who advised you that software raid doesn't work well with  
myth, but I believe they were mistaken. Perhaps what they meant to say  
is that since the inclusion of recording groups, myth no longer NEEDS  
any kind of raid? If you are only storing videos on the 1TB drives, I  
would just mount each one to it's own mountpoint (/mnt/TB1, /mnt/TB2,  
etc?) and then put a recordings folder in the root of each disk, and  
add that folder to the recordings group. Raid is really unnecessary  
for recordings.
