Helo. Can you put an option for a max number of recordings done by an autorecord?. As now tvh keeps track and can delete files after a period of days, is possible to get the total number of records in disk recorded by an specific autorecord and if is over a stablished number, stop scheduling more records until some one is deleted (manually or automatically). This way, for example, we could record "documentals about universe" but avoid to have the disk full, or record cartoons for kids but only some of them (as they are wayyyyyy repetitive....).

Nice idea, it's easy to implement this. I assume that the oldest recordings will be removed when the configured threshold is reached.

Yes, but let the user decide if the deletions will be done automatically or manually. If the user don't allow automatic deletions then only stop scheduling more records.

Great feature. Is it possible to add this also to the digital video recorder profiles?

For example, currenlty I have a seperate profile for recording programs for the kids. After there are more then 5 recordings the oldest will be removed by a post-processing command. Now with the maximum count I don't have to run the script anymore which is great. When this is put in the profile I don't have to specify it anymore for each recording seperately.
