I Agree. With mythtv there is no good reason for using raid 0. I was
just typing the same when gmail told me that someone added a message
to the thread.

I would also add that using LVM to connect a bunch of non raid drives
together is also not a good thing to do. There is no need for
everything to be in 1 filesystem. Much better to let mythtv handle
this with storage groups.
