Extending beyond 7 days

Dunno if this has been covered already in this thread.  I regularly get my
programmes for the last 30 days via the pvr function.  I save a copy of
tv.cache and radio.cache every few days.  Then after 30 days I can reload
the appropriate cache files from the saved ones at 6 or 7 day intervals and
run pvr with a nice long expiry date.  ie
get_iplayer --pvr  --isodate  --expiry 14400000    It works for me and would
be better if I had a batch job that saved the cache files automatically. But
as a simple windows user am not that clever.
