    Mount two partitions in a single directory?


    I have two partitions with videos on it and Mythtv only allows you to specify a single directory to look in for videos (maybe im wrong on this?). I can have further directory's below but that would take a lot of work to keep the videos separated in alphabetical form that is easy to search for a video especially since I add more videos regularly. I was hopeing there is a way I can mount two partitions into a single directory. Right now if I do that with no options it only shows the most recently mounted partition - I want to be able to access both.

    Im not even sure this is possible but thought I would ask it anyway.

    Why not create a directory with 2 folders inside?
    One container folder
    Movies A-M
    Movies N-Z

    Keep all your movies in the 2 separate folders.
    Or if you have just a ton of movies make as many folders as your heart desires inside the one container folder.

    It is not. Q: when you write ti this shared mount how will the system know which shared mount to write to?

    Ya this might be what I end up doing.


    *edit*
    I dont know why I didnt think of this before but if I can find a place to temporarily store a terabyte of data I can repartition and reformat these drives using lvm and I believe this way will also allow me to expand the lvm later if needed.
