Leanfront refreshes the list in the background once per hour. The 
refresh can take up to a minute. I could make it configurable so that 
you can try to achieve a balance between system load and wife acceptance 

The videos section is automatically reloaded as well once per hour.

I could make the video reload interval separate from the recording 
interval and make both configurable.

It would not be easy to immediately update when a recording starts or 
ends like mythfrontend does.

The recording list is updated when the recording starts, so if the 
recording is still in progress it shows in the list, after the refresh 
whether manual or automatic.

Please open an issue in github if you want me to make the change.
