    <DeletionHistoryDays> setting not working

    As I was rooting around in my npvr.db3 with SQLiteSpy, I discovered that the RECENTLY_DELETED table has entries going back 90 days, to April 21st. However earlier this year, I set my <DeletionHistoryDays> setting to 30 and dumped the deletion history. Initially it started recording all shows again, but after a couple of months it got back to skipping most shows. We don't watch all these re-run shows all the time, they often get deleted unwatched, we just expect a fresh batch to be recorded for when the mood strikes. So I went back and set the <DeletionHistoryDays> to 15, but nothing changed. Now I see why, it's still keeping 90 days of history despite my setting. Is this another one where the setting listed in Config.xml isn't the same as what NPVR is looking for?

    I checked this and found it was looking for the <DeletionHistoryDays> setting in a "Recordings" section rather than "Recording". Fixed for the next release.

    so if I wanted it to work now, I could add a section like this?
    Code:
      <Recordings>
        <DeletionHistoryDays>30</DeletionHistoryDays>
      </Recordings>

    Yes, that should work.
