they will expire if a new file is created. that means 5 (I hope that's the wake up time for auto-expire thread) minutes before my disk becomes full, I have to change channel and come back. If I don't do that, it cannot expire the file its writing to. Because it hangs when disk becomes full, it confirms that it can not auto-expire the file its writing.

Your live TV recordings should be expiring as you run low on disk
space to free more up. If that's not happening you have some other
