Old TV recordings not being automatically deleted
#37
OK fine, but this is still a royal mess IMHO. The "keep method" should be set per recording, which I thought happened, except "KeepUntil" date is consistently set wrong.

Then there is the issue of who should do the deleting. I think the backend (MP TV server) only deletes according to the quota set (not useful for me at all - I need finer control of what gets deleted).

So to get this to work as intended I think the MP plugin should do more of the actual deleting. For example if "UntilWatched" is set then there is no way for MP TV Server to know when this recording has been watched in Kodi. And the MP TV server only seems to delete recordings if it really needs space and there is a quota set. But this should not really be necessary unless as a "last resort" if the logic involving "UntilSpaceNeeded = 0, UntilWatched = 1, TillDate = 2, Always = 3" and "KeepUntil" were actually working.

You wrote this above: There are the following choices: "Always, Watched, Until Space needed & Days (selectable from 1 to 365) "

Are these new settings and not the same as those being set per recording? How is the actual deleting done based on these choices and by who?

My apologies for being critical but I think partial solutions only makes this mess even more confusing.
