This is the method I use and I haven't had any problems at all.
Originally I was mounting a dedicated harddrive to
/storage/sata0/recordings for example and symlinking /video to it but
I've recently been testing using my fileserver for recording so I can
completely remove all harddrives from my vdr boxes.  In that case on
the fileserver I am mounting the harddrive to /mnt/lan/recordings and
on the vdr box symlinking /video to it.

So far it has worked great.  Although I'm finding that the dedicated
500GB harddrive isn't going to suit my hdtv recording needs for long.
