*all* liveTV stuff gets auto-expired before anything else? Or is there a
certain amount of liveTV that is exempt from that?
I use TVWish to pick out recordings for me at low priority with auto-expire,
so my drive is full most of the time - If I were using SVN in this case,
would all liveTV get expired first, or is there a way to configure that,
like "Allow most recent [X hours / N programs / Y GB] of LiveTV to have
priority over auto-expire recorded programs"?
Not that I watch live TV all that often, but if I have a full drive and
pause TV, I'd like to be sure that it will do the right thing and
auto-expire previously recorded programs before deleting what I'm currently
