Agreed, except I wasn't talking about channel change times.  I was talking
about the OP's original request to have live TV continue recording when it
is out of disk space.  He only has 4GB of disk and wants to constantly watch
live TV.  So he wants the system, when it gets low on space, to remove the
previous live TV video to free up space and then start saving any future
video in that newly available space.  His problem isn't that live TV is
broken, it's that he doesn't have a system capable of running MythTV the way
it was designed.
