[mythtv-users] Moved db to new machine, mythtv still finds old recordings

I copied my mythtv db from my production machine to a test machine and
modified the db (like explained in the mythtv docs), so that the backend
hostname was replaced with the new machine's name.

Then I changed IP addresses and the default storage dir (no storage
groups) to the local disk of the new machine in mythtv-setup.

Now, when I record something on the new machine, it records to the new
directory as expected.

But I can also watch the old recordings, that are still in the database,
that were recorded with the old machine. The path is accessible (NFS),
but how does mythtv know, where they are located? Because I changed the
hostname and I changed the default storage dir. And I see no path in the
recorded table.

Just curious...
