I've had only good experiences using RAID mirrors for the HDDs
containing the recordings, and an SSD for the OS/MythTV/database. This
experience is based on four MythTV PVRs running in the family since 2011.
When I had both the OS/MythTV/datbase and the recordings on the same
drive I experienced more frequent failures.
One other important thing is to reduce the writes to the disk devices by
adding "noatime,nodiratime" to the /etc/fstab mounts.
If you wish to read more about my experience, see the following article
I wrote on the topic:
