    89% free means you used 11% of the 1 TB hard drive. not really sure what you are asking?
    Hr 34 and 44 both have a 200 hd 800 sd hours of recording capacity.

    Where dose it show the 200 hd 800 sd hours of recording capacity ?


    You won't see a meter showing you have "X" amount of HD space available or "X" amount of SD space because people don't typically record just HD or just SD programs. So the % is just what is says the % of the hard drive available. It would only confuse people to have a meter that says " you can record 200hrs more of HD or 800 hrs more of SD". HD recordings use a lot more space on the hard drive compared to SD and the exact amount someone gets out of the system varies based on what they record...

    Your late news shows all episodes as new in the guide, even when the latter one is a repeat. Thats just the way it is with some shows. Most regular series like Castle, etc, will NOT have this issue.

    The RC71 will not work with the HR34 - it says that on the page you linked to.

    To be certain, it won't work in RF with other units, but IR should be all right.

    That's too bad; the buttons on the RC71 are smaller.

    Get an iPad then.
