Interesting, I notice that as a general issue on my S3/TivoHD.. (Well, my S3 is dead, but I noticed the behavior on both compared to my S1s)
That is, I would notice that far more deleted programs or suggestions would be deleted than would seem to be needed.. Also, I would notice they'd go away HOURS before they were needed.. whereas the S1 seems to delete 'just in time'.
(YES, I *know* shows can vary in size.. I am taking that into account.. not just "1 hour of shows went away when I recorded only a half hour", but way more disk space nuked than contained in the newly made recordings..)
Though I guess I've gotten used to it, and/or it isn't as bad as it used to be (years ago). It is more of an issue with tiny hard drives.
