See http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Backend_migration#Retiring_an_old_backend

And, yes, cleaning up your Storage Groups is a good idea, but you don't 
need "Master backend override" if you clean things up properly.  In 
other words, make sure you do the third step, updating the recording 
host, and all will work with or without the Master backend override enabled.
