 Well you can set a limit on how much space recordings are allowed to take 
up..... so how is this different ?

 OLD :  

    LiveTV Max Size = BLAH
    Recordings Max Size = BLAH2

    Recordings+LiveTV Max Size = BLAH3   

 Just set BLAH3 to what you want it to be (or set it to BLAH2 + BLAH). LiveTV 
items will always get removed first so you are no worse off than before.

 They auto expire. At they are expired before any regular recordings do
so you wont loose a recording unless all livetv is already gone.
