Description

On a Debian GNU/Linux machine, I run mythfrontend and mythbackend. I want to store recordings on 3 reiserfs filesystems (each of which is a complete HDD) which are mounted at α/mythdata0, α/mythdata1, and α/mythdata2.

In the first setup, my default storage group consisted of a single directory: α/mythdata0/recordings. In mythfrontend, Information Center -> System Status -> Machine Status reports System: [3 lines omitted] Total Disk Space: 466 GB total, 268 GB used, 198 GB (or 43%) free. 89 hours and 30 minutes remaining, using your average rate of 5120 kb/sec 89 hours remaining, using your maximum rate of 5174 kb/sec that's OK by me.

In the second setup, my default storage group consisted of 2 directories: α/mythdata0/recordings, and α/mythdata1/recordings. In mythfrontend, Information Center -> System Status -> Machine Status reports System: [3 lines omitted] MythTV Drive #1: Directory: hyatt1:α/mythdata0/recordings 466 GB total, 268 GB used, 198 GB (or 43%) free. 89 hours and 30 minutes remaining, using your average rate of 5120 kb/sec 89 hours remaining, using your maximum rate of 5174 kb/sec MythTV Drive #2: Directory:

hyatt1:α/mythdata1/recordings

149 GB total, 33 MB used, 149 GB (or 100%) free. 67 hours and 30 minutes remaining, using your average rate of 5120 kb/sec 66 hours and 30 minutes remaining, using your maximum rate of 5174 kb/sec Total Disk Space: 615 GB total, 268 GB used, 347 GB (or 56%) free. 157 hours and 45 minutes remaining, using your average rate of 5120 kb/sec 155 hours and 30 minutes remaining, using your maximum rate of 5174 kb/sec that's OK by me, provided that the previously undefined term: "MythTV Drive", is a synonym for "a directory in the default storage group".

In the third setup, my default storage group consisted of 3 directories: α/mythdata0/recordings, α/mythdata1/recordings, and α/mythdata2/recordings. In mythfrontend, Information Center -> System Status -> Machine Status reports System: [3 lines omitted] MythTV Drive #1: Directory: hyatt1:α/mythdata0/recordings 466 GB total, 268 GB used, 198 GB (or 43%) free. 89 hours and 30 minutes remaining, using your average rate of 5120 kb/sec 89 hours remaining, using your maximum rate of 5174 kb/sec MythTV Drive #2: Directories:

hyatt1:α/mythdata1/recordings hyatt1:α/mythdata2/recordings

149 GB total, 33 MB used, 149 GB (or 100%) free. 67 hours and 30 minutes remaining, using your average rate of 5120 kb/sec 66 hours and 30 minutes remaining, using your maximum rate of 5174 kb/sec Total Disk Space: 615 GB totel, 268 GB used, 347 GB (or 56%) free. 157 hours and 45 minutes remaining, using your average rate of 5120 kb/sec 155 hours and 30 minutes remaining, using your maximum rate of 5174 kb/sec and that is completely unacceptable. I added 149 GB of capacity to the default storage group and mythfrontend reports that the total disk space did not grow at all. MythTV seems unaware of the directory that I added to the default storage group. (I know from the results of other tests that the capacity of α/mythdata2/recordings is 149 GB.) Second, since the description of MythTV Drive #2 says that it has 2 directories, my hypothesis that "MythTV Drive" is a synonym for "a directory in the default storage group" must be incorrect.

Your new drives are both empty, or very nearly so within a few MB of fudge factor, so MythTV thinks they are merely two different paths on the same partition. Once you record to one of them, their free space will diverge, and MythTV will be able to differentiate between them. Ignore the issue and it will resolve itself.
