Yeah, this is a very old thread...been very busy lately.

Anyhow, what is the reason for forcing people to use AutoExpire?  Now I 
have to go through all my existing recordings and make sure they do not 
have the flag set?  And then go through all my recording profiles and 
disable it there as well?  That's 200+ recordings and 30+ recording 

Thankfully Mythtv is open source and I can patch out AutoExpire.  Just 
seems silly for something of this nature.
