The folder is correct.  Try giving them all an .avi extension.  Does that work?

I know MythTV threw an error regarding a problem with a .test sub directory in the directory you mention not being writable...

I fixed the problem by doing chown -R mythtv.mythtv on the specific directory.  If the permissions aren't set properly myth may just not be writing stuff to the drive.
