[mythtv-users] Deleted Recordings Not Being Removed

If deletion fails due to a permission problem or other issue, the 
recordings can be left in a delete pending state. Displays of their 
state will be inconsistent.

See If this select shows anything:

select deletepending, recgroup, count(*) from recorded group by 
deletepending, recgroup;

Fix this by using this with the backend down:

UPDATE recorded SET deletepending = 0 where recgroup = 'Deleted';

After starting the backend they should delete normally, as long as the 
ownership of the recordings and their directory is correct
