It's still 100% full, therefore, Myth can not start a new recording.  
Therefore Myth will never start expiring.  Get that usage down to 
something less than 100% (ideally with a few percent free to handle the 
time between when Myth starts recording and when the autoexpire thread 
runs) and then start recording something (anything) to get the 
autoexpire to actually do stuff.
