Why would you assume single timer recordings, or any recordings at all are short-lived? If anything users tend to record shows and watch them at some point in the non-immediate future -- the weekend for example, when they're more likely to have time sitting around watching tv. I know several people who record entire series and don't even start watching them until all the episodes are recorded so they don't have the irritating wait of a week+ between them. Then there are houses, like mine, where one person will watch a recording one day, then somebody else will watch the same thing some days later. By now you should get the point that assuming recordings are short-lived is bad, automatically deleting them is bad, etc. Typical user behavior from my observation certainly isn't record something, watch it immediately, then delete it. _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
