I would also like a way to either immediately delete live tv files or never
create one in the first place. In the 3 years I have been running myth I
have never felt a need to save live tv.  The only live tv I watch is CNN
headline news. If I want to watch something else, I record it first and
delete commercials.

Perhaps it would be possible to have the autoexpire task delete live tv
files as soon as the system detects you are no longer watching live tv.
