I tried this possibility and again something doesn't work as expected. I
created a new storage group called 'Collection'. I want to mount a large
disk to the respective folder /var/lib/mythtv/collection/ and save the
recorded shows, that I want to keep for good, in that folder.

Now, I can find no possibility to move recorded shows into that storage
group. Have I misunderstood anything? The Wiki says:

| Multiple Storage Groups can also be created to group recordings
| together; recording schedules now have an option to specify which
| Storage Group to use.

Is that only possible for new recordings? There must be any way to
change the storage group of an already existing recording. What if I
change my mind which recordings I want to group together? Where is the
storage group management?
