LeanBack ??? Leaseback???  Try leanfront :)

There is a setting in the latest version, in Advanced, that limits the 
number of recordings plus videos to 10,000 of the latest added. If you 
have more than that you can change it.

The reason I put that there is that people with huge numbers of 
recordings (for example 60,000) or videos will find that leanfront takes 
5 minutes or more to start up, so this is a way to make it usable. 
Leanfront should in theory be able to handle an unlimited number of 
recordings and videos, but could get very slow.
