Record new and delete old is not auto-expire.  That's why the episodes 
aren't just stuck in a Deleted group and left until your hard drive 
fills up.  They are actually deleted once the new episode is recorded.

Whether record new and delete old marks the episodes to allow re-record 
is something I couldn't tell you (and don't have time to look through 
code right now).
