I can see where you're coming from with this, I guess you have
auto-expire turned off by default.
I, I'm guessing many others as well, have auto-expire turned on by
default (except for a select few recordings). By having functionality
like this, it would allow newer watched recordings to be auto-expired
before older unwatched recordings.
It was supposed to be so Easy.
