Are there any recordings that the slave recorded?  The process
runs on each backend and that backend expires it's own recordings.
I'm probably going to integrate this all into the master expire
process but it was easier to get it up and running this way to begin
with.  I'll try to take a look at this today.  Once I convert it so
that the expire process runs only on the master then you'll be able
to do --printexpire from anywhere and it should work (even from a
non-backend machine that happens to have mythbackend installed).

The "max episodes" expire does run on the master only already.

Actually that's just the Delete popup box with different text
and SLOTs associated with it.  I think this is a QT issue we'll have
to work around but I'm not sure since I'm not that familiar with QT.
Annoys me sometimes too. :)

I like that idea and thought in the past if it would be nice if we
had indicators for other things as well like for instance if a cutlist
exists.  I'll make a note on my TODO. :)

The Advanced Recording Options screen is here to stay I think.  Isaac
doesn't want to clutter up the main recording screen and I agree.  For
the typical user who sets up their defaults they probably won't use
most of the stuff in the advanced screen.  I tied it to a second keypress
of the 'I' key so that it wouldn't use up another key on the remote.
