Hard Drive filling up

Post by jameswilson1977 » Sat Jan 21, 2017 6:49 pm

Ive built a new mythbuntu box but my recordings are not autoexpiring.
Ive looked everywhere in the backend and frontend but cant see where I turn this on for all recordings?

Any ideas please?

log into mysql:

Code: Select all

mysql -u root -p mythconverg
then:

Code: Select all

UPDATE recorded SET autoexpire = 1;
quit
You will still need to change the setting in your recording rules. if you want to do all of those replace recorded with record in the sql command
