[mythtv-users] Consolidation of folders in storage groups

Hi everyone,

Is it possible to have MythTV consolidate folders of the same name in
storage groups?

For example, let's say my Videos Storage Group included:


and so on. At the moment, that'd result in me seeing 2 movies folders
and 2 music folders. That's not terribly desirable - whilst I can try
to get away with putting movies on disk1 and music on disk2, it'd be
nice to be able to spill over onto a new disk if one fills up.

I don't want to use RAID or LVM for this - in the event of a disk
failure, I'd rather the damage be confined to only the disk that
failed. Striping would muck that up.

Is there something I've missed in MythTV, or do I need to resort to
something like UnionFS or aufs to get this done?

- Chris
