[mythtv-users] Feature request: upcoming recordings disk usage

It would be really nice if the upcoming recording screen would warn
about running out of disk space.  If Myth knew the bitrate for each
show, this would be easy.  For shows encoded locally, that's easy.  For
digital shows (e.g., QAM and ATSC), it would require tracking an average
bitrate for shows previously recorded on that channel, which seems like
a relatively easy thing to track.

It would be an estimate, but it should be good enough to be helpful.
