I didn't realize this until recently. That is, I've always had all my
recording directories mounted on the same paths on all my backend
machines, but I didn't realize that I had to create a Default storage
group that includes all the directories on each backend machine in
order for any backend to be able to store to any directory as
needed. I'd previously had a Default storage group on the master
backend only, which the documentation (if I didn't misread it)
indicated/indicates is sufficient for achieving the above.

Frontend:		P4 3.0GHz, 1.5TB software RAID 5 array
Backend:		Quad-core Xeon 1.6GHz, 6.6TB sw RAID 6
Video inputs:		Four high-definition over FireWire/OTA
Accessories:		47" 1080p LCD, 5.1 digital, and MX-600
