Auto-expire was set to on. Recordings were not deleted. that's how it
was. I've now gone through and set some of the daily recordings to
keep only 3 copies and to delete oldest copy, etc. so that should

What I did above was in mythfrontend. I've not found any settings that
seem to effect this in mythtv-setup. I would have thought it would be
there since this is sort of a back end thing too, but no luck.
We'll see how these latest changes effect things.
