Description

My recordings were being deleted and I had no clue why... then looking at the logs found out that the cause was the "Autorec maximum count" option.

The description of the 'Autorec maximum count' option is:
"Autorec maximum count (0=unlimited) : The maximum number of entries that can be matched."

And here: https://tvheadend.org/boards/5/topics/33540?r=33541#message-33541:
"Autorec maximum count (0=unlimited) : Maximum matched EPG entries per autorec rule."

This is wrong and misleads the user to think that the autorec config will only match/schedule no more than X recordings in the EPG search when in fact it has nothing to do with "matching" or EPG entries.

The help/description for this option should be more like: "Autorec maximum number of recordings to keep in disc."
