The ability to control on a per-rule basis how many episodes of a
given program are kept at a given time is one of the (many) unsung
advantages of MythTV. Like Greg I have the latest--and only the
latest--episode of SportsCenter available each day. Also recorded this
way are everal other news and sports news programs and other programs
I want to have an episode or three around at any given time but don't
care which one, like _Sunrise Earth_. The scheduler automatically
expires unwanted episodes without doing anything on my part beyond
creating the rules for each.
