I've got an 8300HD connected to Cox San Diego (South) I'm looking for a way to set show recording and deletion priority. My GF says it'll record two shows at once, but it's still possible for there to be contention I'd care about... how can I tell it which show wins? Same for when a recorded show needs to be deleted for space... how can I say older episodes of Show A or Show B can go, but Show C should always stay unless absolutely necessary?

Assuming "Passport" firmware (you didn't mention that) older shows will always be deleted before newer shows. As far as your "Show C" scenario, just mark that program as Manual Deletion Only. Read through the thread about using Passport on 8xxx DVRs at:
