There aren't 570 movies inexistence tha Interest me enough to watch them more than once if even that.
If you cut that to 1 hour programs at about 1.75GB each, that exceeds the 999/1000 program limit of the OS and there surely are NOT 999 various episodes of anything I want, especially all crammed on one hard drive.
I keep my EHD programs on seperate drives by program/programming type, needless to say I have 10-15 25GB hard drives that hold my programs, but things are much easier to find and the drives are less than 1/2 full and get little comparative use = last longer.

Here's what happened to me. I had a "mixed arc set-up" (61.5/110/119). This dates back to the Sky Angel days. About the same time as the demise of Sky Angel on 61.5 came my HD locals on the same satellite. This was before "HD Free For All" (I had an HD DVR but no HD service because I did not have an HDTV). When I signed up for FFA I did not bother to fix my mixed arc set-up. Then one day there was a problem with one of the other EA satellites. Suddenly a bunch of SD channels were moved temporally to 61.5. NBD, I still got all the channels I watched in SD, except what used to come from 119 was now coming from 61.5. I had a daily timer for one of the channels that got switched. I periodically moved the recordings from this daily timer to my EHD. One day I noticed the file size per program from this timer shrunk by almost half! It turns out that when the command to move the channels on the EA happened it affected what I was formerly getting off 119. The same networks on 61.5 are in MPEG4 while the same network on 119 was still in MPEG2. The only difference I could see was in the file size.

here's another reason I am not a computer guy.
Why the system would not format the first 2TB of the 3TB drive and then work just fine for y'all is beyond the dull grasp of my withered intellect.
