I was looking around at the local cable company's DVRs and just cant help but laugh. If I only had the capacity to record 10 HD hours on my DVR I wouldnt have one lol.

Recording Capacity
The recording capacity on the DVR depends on the video format of the programming. Here are some guidelines to use when determining recording capacity:

Limited Cable (channels 2-99) - up to 25 hours
Digital & Premium Networks (channels 100 - 610 excluding HDTV) - up to 60 hours
High Definition TV (channels 421 - 500) - up to 10 hours

Directv & Sunday Ticket Sub Since 8/19/2008
HR24-200 Leased, HR24-100 Owned, HR20-700 Owned (Not Active), R22-200 Owned, HR22-100 Owned, HR22-100 Owned, HR44-500 Owned. 5 LNB Setup W/SWM 16 Switch
Sony KDL-46HX800

Dang, even Time Warner allows 20 HD I think.

But why can you record fewer hours of SD ABC than SD Discovery?

"Belligerent and numerous."

SlingTV, Tablo and Plex to Roku 3s and Chromecasts on a Vizio 42" in the living room and a Toshiba 32" in my bedroom. Xbox 360 client on a Westinghouse 42" in the game room. Tablets EVERYWHERE!


I used to update the Dish Network FAQ but not anymore.

Bet those channels are analog and the A/D conversion is not that efficient.

Ultimate plus movie channels
