I do not use Live TV much. I assume you are referring to the prior Live 
TV recordings that will show in the Live TV group above the channels. I 
had assumed that they would be automatically deleted by the system in a 
day or two. How long do they stay around?

You should be able to delete the prior recordings a row at a time by 
selecting the row and pressing Menu or long pressing the center pad. 
There is a menu with several options, among them to delete the entire 
row. Once deleted they will still be in the deleted group for some time.

Otherwise I can change it to automatically delete Live TV recordings 
when you exit Live TV. They will still be available for some time in the 
Deleted group. If you would like this, please open an issue in the 
github repository at
