The answer here basically boils down to: You're thinking of your MythTV
box like a computer and not like a DVR. Why do you care how much disk
space is being used currently by recordings that you cannot see from the
UI and will be removed automatically to make space for other recordings?
If you use your partition for something other than the DVR, set your
auto-expire buffer space higher to ensure you always have enough space.
All the tools are in Myth to operate in either environment. The issue
is only in people's heads who cannot get over the fact that their disk
is always basically "full" and that Myth will properly manage the space.
