I've had problems with livetv recordings not expiering properly too.
I left one long livetv recording to see if myth expierd it after 7 days.
What happend was that the *.nuv file was deleted but not the assosiated
*.png file and all data was still in the database, so when it was trying to
expier it again later it just complaind about not finding the file and then
giving up.
