[mythtv-users] Question about Auto-expire

I would like to record and keep 20 episodes of Sesame Street on my mythbox
at all times.  As new episodes are recorded, old episodes can be deleted.

I tried to set this up in the Recording Schedule by enabling auto-expire,
and setting "No. of recordings to keep" to 20.  However, based on the
documentation, auto-expire works primarily on disk space usage.  Plus, once
20 episodes of the show have been recorded, mythtv won't record anymore
until I manually delete the old episodes.

Am I missing something?  Is it possible to implement this setup?

MythTV Version : v0.25
MythTV Branch : fixes/0.25
Network Protocol : 72
Library API : 0.25.20120408-1
QT Version : 4.8.1

Thank you
