> Likely you need to see:
> http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Frequently_Asked_Questions#Why_aren.27t_my_new_recordings_showing_up_in_Watch_Recordings.3F
> and if that's not the problem, you should run:
> http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/find_orphans.py
> to verify that the files are not associated with any database metadata.  If
> they're truly orphaned video files, you can then delete them with rm (which
> is easy to do by taking the output of find_orphans.py, putting it in an
> editor and using search/replace to change the list of orphaned video files
> (and snapshots) to
> rm /srv/mounts/twotb_1/video/2054_20080225110000.mpg
> rm /srv/mounts/myth0_1/video/4122_20101013113500.mpg.png
> Then you need to figure out why your recordings are not being deleted.  One
or two orphans I can understand... but it sounds like your system isn't
deleting them at all.
