[mythtv-users] Mythvideo - disabling storage groups

Having just upgraded from 0.21-fixes to 0.22-fixes, I went through the
instructions on the wiki to create all the new storage groups for

I then remembered that I have a few iso images so I deleted the video
storage group and filled in a direct path on the Setup->videos->general
page so that meta data would be accessed via the storage groups but the
video file itself would be direct file access or via NFS on the frontends.

Doesn't work - video browsing still thinks that it is using storage groups
so I can't play anything at all, never mind iso images :-(

So how do I disable the video storage group other than deleting it so I
can play anything? And what is the failed to open /dev/dvd error all about
when trying to play an iso image?
