Something I'd like to see is an option use the existing recording 
priority value when deciding what to expire. In other words sorting by 
priority and then date instead of just date. When it comes time to 
reclaim disk space I don't want a recent low priority show to count for 
more than an older high priority show which I think does happen now 
(haven't looked at the source).

On the recording side I guess you could assign a priority to each 
search criteria, maybe AFI's recommendations count for more than 

Anyway, I think with a little tweaking the built-in priority feature 
can accomplish what you want with classes of disk space.
