How to manage deletion of recordings?

We are contemplating a whole home PVR solution such as Gateway, but our viewing habits have me concerned about managing the saved recordings space on the PVR.  For example, we have 3 different viewers in the home, all with differing viewing tastes, and all watching TV at different times of the day due to varying work schedules.  Lets say all 3 of us watch Modern Family from the PVR, so when one completes watching an episode, they should not delete it as one or more others may not yet have viewed it.  But how do we know everyone has seen it and it can be deleted? If no one deletes anything, very soon we will have no control over what is saved as the system will start deleting to make room for more recordings, or won't record at all given the lack of space.  Does anyone have a solution for this?  Is there a feature in Gateway to track who has or wishes to view a particular recording?
