Yeah - I run a script every night that updates any recordings with the
one flag to set the other as well - typically I'm interested in both or
neither. Plus - this way you get a visual indicator when you preserve a
show (that has finally made it into the trunk, but I'm not sure if it is
in a released version yet).
Most of my recordings have episode limits. The kids like watching
sitcoms but I don't want my whole drive expired when there is a weekend
I'd still like to see myth become multi-user aware. Per-user quotas,
personalized program filters (beyond just recording groups), and the
ability to track who has seen what show would all be nice to have! I
know it was a Google SoC project - I guess it never panned out...
