I don't think something like this should be build into VDR. A small
script is enough for realizing this. (It simply deletes all, except the
$MAXCOUNT oldest, recordings in the "RECORDING" Subdir)
-- delold.sh --
cd "$BASEDIR/$RECORDING" || exit 1
count=`ls | wc -l`
if [ $count > $MAXCOUNT ]; then
dirtodel=`ls | head -n $todel`
rm -rf $dirtodel
-- End --
Correct the Dirs, set the count (Copy the block any number of times for
other subdirs). Run it via "commands" (Maybe you need "echo Someting" to
make VDR happy, don't know since i don't use commands in VDR) or via
cron. And you're set.
Btw. You ment "Ring"(-Buffer) and not FIFO.
Klaus: Maybe this is something for the contrib dir/package.
Real Programmers consider "what you see is what you get" to be just as
bad a concept in Text Editors as it is in women. No, the Real Programmer
wants a "you asked for it, you got it" text editor -- complicated,
cryptic, powerful, unforgiving, dangerous.
