This reads like a really great piece of work. This is probably the best part:
"LiveTV recordings may be put into their own directory or directories by
creating a special 'LiveTV' Storage Group."
I'm still on 0.18.1 because I've not been too keen on the new way
LiveTV works. But from what this seems to imply, one could create a
separate LiveTV partition or drive JUST for LiveTV that wouldn't
affect other recordings, basically a masterfully written ring buffer.
Of course it does much more than that, but for some of us who liked
the old ring buffer this seems like a really great concept.
