[mythtv] LiveTV Recordings question

How about, then, a simple "Autoexpire LiveTV Recordings After Viewing" that
just simply means they get autoexpired as soon as you change the channel or
stop viewing LiveTV?  That doesn't seem like it would burden anyone in terms
of adding to the complexity.

Turn off the viewing of LiveTV recordings in Watch Recordings. As for 
clutter, it has been discussed ad nauseum. The recordings will be the 
first thing auto-expired when space is needed for other recordings so as 
long as your auto-expiration settings are correct, the will never cause 
an issue with regards to space.
