Some people are spreading it out further than the above.

/var/lib/mythtv is the default location, and ensure that recordings are
going into sub directories (that dont exist when the mount fails - mounting
hides the underlying files that exist in that mount point / directory before
the mount.

This  ensures that if the mount fails the os partition isnt just filled up
to the brim and causes all sorts of other issues.
