Don't try to solve social problems with technology. You two need
to be communicating better if you want to marry her.

Talk to her about it. Explain the cost of a single show in terms of
diskspace, the cost of disks, and the consequent importance of deleting
shows that she's finished with. Explain the relative sizes of HD and
SD programs -- looking at the Delete Recordings screen is good for
that. Treat her like a human being, capable of learning and reasoning
just as you are.  Show her how to mark shows for non-deletion. Show her
how to transcode shows or archive them to DVD.
