[mythtv-users] Question about Auto-expire

Is there a notification icon that lets you know if a recorded show has been
preserved or not?  I checked both mythweb, and mythfrontend, but didn't see

Also, is it common for the max number of recorded shows to differ between
mythweb and mythfrontend?  Yesterday, I changed the max recordings from 20
to 17.  Mythweb shows the new max shows, but when I went into the frontend,
it still showed 20.  Plus, the backend failed to remove the oldest, so now
I have 18 recordings on my box.
