the tivo handles its show management automatically. it will use up space as it is needed. that is a big reason why the feature you are using wasn't available sooner, it creates confusion. as with any other operating system, when files are deleted, they don't disappear, they simply get marked as deleted and have their 'table of contents' entries deleted. when space is needed, the tivo will grab space first from the deleted programs. if it still needs more space, it will delete suggestions (based on the oldest to the newest), then sheduled recordings based on how many episodes there are and how old the program is.
