[mythtv-users] going on vacation, how can I deactivate most recordings with an sql command?

I am thinking of deactivating all recordings and then reactivating just a
few so I dont run out of disk space.

There seems to be a inactive column in the record table and all of the
schedules have this set to 0 (hence, active I suppose).  I am thinking of
setting all to a value of 1 with:

update record set inactive=1;

Then set inactive=0 for a few select program schedules.  Then when I return
from my vacation, I can:

update record set inactive=0;

Is this the way to do this?
