I found the answer to my own question.

When you create storage groups you MUST unmount your old nfs mounts
before doing a rescan for videos.  If myth can find the videos locally
when scanning it thinks they're not in a storage group, even if you
have NO video locations defined and the only way it inferred that
local directory structure was from the storage group location :)
