None at all if both directories are in the storage group in which the 
recording is stored and both directories are available through the same 
host.  None to speak of even if you move a file from a directory in one 
storage group to directory in another storage group that's not in the 
original storage group (meaning Myth will figure it all out).

Both of the above statements assume that there are no host issues (i.e. 
all directories are available on all hosts).  If host changes and the 
old host doesn't have access to the new location, there will be issues 
(you'd need to change the hostname for the recording), but that 
shouldn't be an issue for you.
