This depends on how you have it setup. Say you have 4 HDD's in your NAS. 
If you setup your NAS using LVM or possibly RAID, so that the NAS "sees" 
them as 1 big HDD, then your MythTV box (after mounting) will "see" them 
as 1 big drive. On the other hand, if you setup your NAS as 4 individual 
HDD's, then you would have to mount the 4 HDD's into different 
directories on your MythTV box like, disk-1, disk-2, disk-3, disk-4. You 
would then have to manually organize the 4 HDD's (directories on the 
MythTV box) as you see fit.
