#5251 closed Patch - Feature (Won't Fix)

Add watched status as weighted input to Time/Priority auto expire

This patch extends the concept of the "Weighted Time/Priority?" auto-expire method to include a recording's watched status as an input into the weighting algorithm.

The renamed Weighted Time/Priority/Watched? method takes a configurable number of days to take away from already watched programs when ranking them for auto-expiry. This parallels the existing # of days weight to add to higher-priority programs (although watched is boolean, but this can be offset by using a larger watched weight).

Having a weight for watched programs allows a mix of expiring ancient unwatched programs before new watched programs (that your spouse watched without you) while at the same time expiring old watched programs before new unwatched ones.

Setting the max watched weight achieves a similar effect to the current 'watched before unwatched" flag, so no functionality is lost for anyone who prefers the existing method.

As of 25614, this patch no longer applies.... although it worked on builds a month or so ago.

I've personally found it very useful for over a year... I much prefer items I've watched to be expired over items I haven't watched. I don't believe this is particularly intrustive.

Is there any chance it can be cleaned up and committed?

Type: enhancementPatch - Feature

There comes a time when a feature patch has been ignored for so long that it's unlikely to ever get the attention it deserves. I'm closing this as 'Won't Fix' because there seems to be no interest in this feature among the devs. If I'm wrong one of them will accept the ticket, re-open and make a commitment to get this in for 0.26.
