I would like to change the number of database backups saved from the default 5. I have already moved the mythtv-database script to /etc/cron.daily and it is creating a backup each day instead of weekly. I also created a backuprc file with this command:

    echo "DBBackupDirectory=/home/mythtv" > ~/.mythtv/backuprc

and added rotate=21 to it. - i.e.

DBBackupDirectory=/var/lib/mythtv/db_backups

rotate=21

It is still only saving 5 backups.I don't really know if /.mythtv/backuprc is being used.
