Define 'working' - I believe it still doesn't work with isos or
external players.

define 'current location' - if you have a current mythvideo directory
defined on the 'old' non SG basis and you want it to be a storage
group instead then I believe you have to

(a) define it as a SG
(b) remove the old setting
(c) scan for videos again (as they will now have a new 'location')

However you CAN mix and match storage groups and the 'old' way. People
can then keep their ISOS in the old system and other material in the
SG system. Of course the 'old' location still has to be mounted in the
same location on every front end...
