500gb hard drive. About 100 hours of MPEG4 HD.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

It uses the same user manual as the HR23 for all intensive purposes which can be found, downloaded, and or printed here:

Thanks.

That's something some folks forget...the space required to store MPEG 2 and MPEG4 HD recordings is NOT the same.

Bad info. If the DVR dies, you're screwed because recordings can't be viewed on a different DVR.

Not true. The recordings are tied to the DVR, so if the DVR dies the recordings are lost even if on an external drive.
