Okay since this morning I mentioned I saw disk space available an 0% available, and a disk space warning," The Recorder has less than 10% available disk space"
9 hours later I am still recording, I have approximately 77 hours of HD Mpeg2 programming on this 500GB HD. Looking at the current recordings, I still seem to be chugging away.
One interesting issue, I've been recording HDnet, and Wag the Dog and Simone follow each other, Simone being recorded now. When I went to view Simone, it started at -29 minutes (Wag the Dog), and continued to the play 1:26 minutes into Simone. So it appears with a near full disk, the playback is having some interesting effects on MYVOD's program start/stop time with recordings back to back on the same channel. From Simone, I tried rewinding to the beginning of the program and I was able to go back -1:00, a full hour into the preceding program "Wag the Dog" Very strange. So far it only seems to be the case with this current recording.
Based on what I've seen so far, it appears I am getting around 6GB/hr for MPEG2 based on WolfPack's analysis of previous MPEG2 recordings. If this is correct, I should be at about 462GB, and have about 6 hours of more HD recording time.
So it appears from this layman test, the MYVOD remaining disk space will only indicate the percentage remaining for a 300GB drive, while recording will continue until the actual drive space is full.
Once it does fill up and stop, I will pull the drive out and see if I can figure out actual disk space usage.
I've had a hard time using a SATA sil3144 PCI card with Knoppix 5, and GenToo Linux LiveCD. Ubuntu is next. Can't seem to get the device recognized. Needless to say, this appears to be a SATA RAID card that I picked up, so I am not sure if there are drivers for it. I don't know if I am going to be able to actually look at the drive without another SATA card.
If anyone is curious about SATA support on Linux, I found a good FAQ which I still have to read through:http://linuxmafia.co...dware/sata.html
