When run on a remote host, mythtv-setup will still check to see if any 
valid storage groups are /defined/ (such that directories are available 
on this host).  That means that if you set up your storage groups 
properly on the master backend (specifying directories that are 
available on your remote backend), you won't be prompted to "fix" your 
storage directories.

Remember, you cannot define a storage group on the remote backend--you 
can /only/ override the directory list from the definition on the master 
backend.  I.e. you can only say, "The master backend SG definition is 
wrong."  So just make the master backend definition correct, and all 
will work.

Thanks for adding it.
