Well, as Jay mentioned it would stop df from being any use, resulting in
never knowing how much space is actually free on the disk. This is more
troublesome than the old method because you could always rely on the
upper limit of the ring buffer in the past (This is obviously only
relevant for non-dedicated myth partitions though).
Are the live-tv recordings deleted once you leave live-tv or do they
remain until they auto expire?
