[mythtv-users] 'Good stuff' v 'everyday' storage setup question

I bet there are many who like me separate their media world into 
generally two buckets, 'important to keep over the years' and 
'everyday'.    Favorite shows, home movies, and the like we want to 
store on backed up media/RAID.  The everyday material can accumulate on 
lone backend server drives as when those eventually die it's a bother 
but not a heartbreak.

The struggle I'm having with mythtv is setting up a disk storage 
structure that reflects that fact while being usable.  The tension comes 
as I need help seeing how to move a group of shows from the 'everyday' 
category into the 'important and backed up' category -- within mythtv, 
without using programming or command line skills.

A secondary issue is that I'd like to have all my 'important' shows in 
the same menu tree, whether they started off as home movies or received 
via broadcast media.

I'm sure someone has solved this already, please share!
