Re: Weird behavior in mythbackend, threadedfilewriter attempts to write to "/", or why does mythtv hate "Back to the Fut

So, it recorded properly and ultimately I'm not sure why. To double check I went back in through setup and verified that there were no "/" directories in my storage groups. There were none. My guess is that deleting a somehow corrupt recording rule and re-establishing it did the trick, but I honestl...

Thanks!
