View Full Version : Multiple drives question

September 29th, 2009, 05:49 PM
I had originally 2 drives for my backend. One was a 30g which had the OS and not much else. I changed all the workings for myth to point to a 250g drive. I have filled that drive and added a second 250g for more storage. My problem is this; Is there anyway to have mythtv point to both drives as storage for video files. I grab movies and videos from other sources not capture cards. I want mythtv to be able to see all stored videos on both drives and play then back from mythtvs interface on the frontend. thanks

Maybe you could create a symbolic link from the main video directory that points to the second drive.

For example


you need to use the ln command to "link" the directory /var/videos/drive2 to /mnt/drive2
