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, HR24-200 Owned, R22-200 Owned, HR22-100 Owned, HR22-100 Owned, HR34-700 Leased. 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."

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ

AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

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