Thanks Mike for your input and tips on newer drives and "relatime".

In this situation I mentioned above (both OS/MythTV/database and
recording on the same drive), this was the only drive in the computer
and there was no RAID involved.

I think the single drive experienced excessive wear and tear when
recording 4 TV shows, commercial flagging 4 TV shows, and watching an
existing TV show all concurrently.  Surprisingly these single drive set
ups would make it a year or two before failing.
