Can you auto expire them after a second?

My machine is running short on space.  I am always fighting to keep 
enough space free for the next few scheduled recordings.
I have never turned on auto-expire, though as my recorded shows are 
hardly ever rebroadcast, so I don't want them deleted.  Can you set myth 
to only autoexpire a certain subset of your recordings?

Will it auto-expire while recording (Ie, if there is only 500Mb free and 
dropping fast, start autoexpiring)?
