> After upgrading from 0.18.1 to 0.20, MythTV is failing to delete ringbuffer 

 As of 0.19 the ringbuffer is nomore. Now all LiveTV is stored as recordings
and seperated depending on the scheduled programs for the time period that 
you have it running.   Myth will auto delete LiveTV recordings immediately 
if they are less than 2 minutes long, OR after 24 hours by default. Myth 
will also Autoexpire LiveTV recordings first if any space is required for 
a regular recording.

 Just in case your first questions are the same as most others, no it's not
an optional behaviour,no you can't lower it less than 24 hours without 
code changes, and no the old behaviour wont be coming back :)
