This is probably going to get me kicked off the list :-), but the URL 
following URL http://www.anandtech.com/showdoc.html?i=1766&p=16 provides
screenshots of Windows XP media center edition.

I'd like to direct your attention to the screenshot of the recording screen
the bottom, where it gives you the options for how long you want to keep the

show. One of the options is "Until space is needed".... I think this would 
probably work fairly well, where when space was needed, the software could 
start deleting shows that were tagged as above starting with the oldest.

Another intresting option on the screen is the "Recording Quality" option...

Kind of neat.... I can have different quality for different shows I am 

Comments ???
