I left space when setting up my Xen server so I could create the
logical volume to hold recordings (my dom0 volume is about 30GB ...
the drive is 750).  I actually just completed my backend migration
about an hour ago... had to do the copy of recording files overnight.
When I've completed migrating things off the hold hardware, I'm
actually going to move the old disk into the new box, reformat,
present it to the mythbackend domU and move my recordings back so I
can free up the LV space for other purposes.  The DB backup and
restore worked like a charm (remembering to run the change hostname
command of course).  I'm now working on upgrading my frontends...
fingers crossed.  If you don't have space in your mythbackend domU,
you could conceivably copy the files to another domain that has space
and do an NFS export?
