The idea is that vdr shows you which recordings could be done without
harming your already made recordings and which could be done with
deleting some of them regarding the priority and lifetime. Of course
this answer changes when you delete some of the recordings. So it should
be updated evertime you enter the timers menu.

Yes, but it could not (as far as I know) calculate which of the
recordings could be deleted to create new disc space.
