[mythtv-users] File permissions

mythbackend runs as user mythtv.  My normal user is a member of the 
mythtv group and I have write permission on the storage directories, but 
the recordings are created without group write permission.  Any time I 
need to work with a recording file (like fixing decoder errors (wish 
that bug would get fixed some day, but I digress)) I need to chmod g+w 
on the file first.  Is there a way I can have the recordings always 
created with group write permission?
