Couldn't you take a "snapshot" of the rows in question before a file is
marked as autoexpired. Then, go into the GUI or mythweb, mark the show
as autoexpired, and look at the row again, to see what changed?
Perhaps you could look at some of the mythweb php scripts to see how
they manipulate the autoexpired flag? There's probably a myth
api/protocol to do just that....
