Solution: Most likely need to replace the box with a newer model as you described above.
So, 3 months later, and my wife is still trying to watch all her shows so I can take it and get it swapped out (vicious cycle of more shows always recording)
But I thought I would mention that since we keep the box about 10% full now (instead of 70% full) we never miss a recording any more. I'm wondering if TWC fixed the glitch or if the machine is more easily able to allocate space now.
The new thing it's doing is you turn it on (and display indicates it's on) but the amp reports "No Signal". Rebooting the 8300HD fixes it. It also rebooted on it's own the other day. 3 of these little "events" in a month I think.
