So you're using just one video directory, and all of that directory is 
on one mounted partition. Thats fine.

Can you give an example for a complete recording path name that should 
be ready for deletion in your opinion? For VDR-1.7.x, please also post 
the info file.

Oh, and please don't copy into a new mail, just hit the reply button, 
and make sure it goes to vdr at linuxtv.org.
