How are your storage groups set up. Are all of the drives in the same
storage group? Did you only set up storage groups on the MBE and make
sure all storage groups are deleted off of the SBE? Also I believe
there is a setting to indicate which storage group should be used for
live tv. I remember I had some odd things happen because I didn't
remove the default storage group from the SBE and so it was overriding
the definition I had on the MBE. You may have something odd like that
going on.
