Summary of the problem or suggestion:
Currently use Silicon Dust HDHomerun as my DVR, and I have MCEBuddy monitor the path, compress/delete the original recording to save space. However, because I delete the original file, my HDHomerun DVR records it again on next airing.
The feature I would request is to delete the original file, but create an empty file with the same name/extension as the original in its place (or just overwrite the file with nothing). This would trick my DVR into thinking that it does not need to record again.
