I'm not so sure they're orphans, they are original recordings that
have been transcoded and kept due to not un-checking the box in set-up
"Save original files after transcoding
(globally)"., and then marked as "old" in the mythtv/recordings file.
I could manually delete them, but not wanting to create orphans, I
await the wisdom of this list for experienced direction.   Thanks in
advance   Daryl
