Why not have an option that says "keep X versions of this show".  So if you
select to record the news every day, you could say keep 1 copy so it would
overwrite every morning.  Then when you said to record say "Law & Order"
anytime it came on, you could say to keep 4 copies of it so it would keep the
latest 4 episodes.  You could set it to 5 to keep the M-F versions of a show
that comes on every weekday.
