You would be better served by making the recordings directory use a complete 
partition reserved for that use alone. If you want to use some portion of the 
*disk* for videos, music, whatever, it would be better to create /mnt/sdb2, 
/mnt/sdb3, etc and assign those.

This means that the backend would not have to manage space which contained 
"foreign" files in it not under it's control. The other way works; it means you 
have to increase the "extra space" parameter in mythtv-setup and you would have 
to manually manage the partition space yourself.
