A gentle bump in case you missed this one margro, I could use some input on this.

margro: This is still a problem, recordings are NOT being deleted. Could you give some feedback on what I wrote above please?

If lack of time is the issue I'll be more than happy to take a look at your code and see if I can get this fixed. Was gonna write a small program that deletes recordings based on my logic above, but I figure the time will be better spent fixing the real issue.

Please let me know, thanks!

Well, if the client is setting the keepUntil field as 1 (until watched) then it would make sense for the client to be responsible for the deletion I suppose.

If you are setting it as keepUntil a date, then it would have to be the back end.

I repeat my advice to you. Install the MediaPortal front end, and set a few recordings there. Check what is in the database, and see if the deletion works as expected. If it all works fine within MediaPortal, then you are in a position to compare directly and see if the Kodi plugin is setting things incorrectly. If it is, I'd say it is likely to be an easy fix.
