I currently have the system/myth on one small physical drive/partition, and
video0 mapped to a separate physical drive/partition. Both are  mechanical
HDDs.  I hope to back up mythconverg,  clone video0 to a same-size SSD, do
a clean install of 18.04/myth 31 on a small ssd, and restore the DB. Then
everything will work great. I'm dreaming, aren't I?
