I am setting up a brand new backend for my Mythtv (all in ubuntu 12.04), 
and need to move the database and existing recordings to this new 
machine. I read in the Wiki on how to manage storage devices in the 
storage groups, but am not clear on how to best move betwen different 
physical machines.

My plan is to export - import the database and simply do a rsync of the 
recordings to the new maching. The paths in the new machine will be 
slightly different (bigger, raid5, as opposed to smaller and no-raid 

Any advice before I start and make troubles for myself?
