Just as a follow up ...I decided to remove a couple of disks from the
RAID5 array, so now I have

2x 750GB disks in RAID1 for O/S, mysql (and some other uses)
2x 250GB disks in RAID0 with directories for liveTV and default storage groups
6x 750GB disks in RAID5 with a directory for long term storage group
(and some other uses)

This has made a drastic improvement to concurrent HD recordings and
live chase-play, though I haven't been running it this way long enough
to declare it perfect yet!

Am I missing something, or is there no method from the front-end to
move a recording from one storage group to another? Is this feature a
"do not want"?
