Note that you'll still have weird side effects if all the storage space is
in the master.  You can't just use storage groups because Myth will only
record to a disk that's in the same machine as the tuner it's recording
from.  You can get around this by doing an NFS mount, but Myth will think
there's twice as much space available as there really is because it sees
the NFS mount on the slave and the local disk on the master as separate
