I Thought about doing that but it eats into your 1GB storage space, no?
I guess it would. We stay caught up on our recordings so storage is no issue. Sure beats having to go into the PTAT folder all the time. I thought it was 2 Therabytes storage!
1TB for general timer recording + 1TB for PTAT and VOD.
OK, understand. Well we never use that much storage. Get caught up on the weekends.
Old, outdated info. Sizes are wrong and method is different. Search my posts about dissection of QUOTA for the model.
I can't find it P Smith. Can you let us know how the hard drive is divided up? I am new to Hoppers and still learning. Thanks
It's 1231GB total for user space. Up to 231GB of which could be occupied by PTAT. If you don't use PTAT, that space is yours to use.
I was going by the info I found on the Hopper from a Dish link and what my installer told me when it was delivered.
How you get second number ? By some guess ? Or did thru quota table ?
Thanks P Smith
Saving PTAT shows, or setting timers for PTAT shows does not use additional storage space until the 8 days are up and they are not erased. Saved PTAT shows and regular timers of PTAT shows will, however, be listed in "My Recordings" in addition to the PTAT list.
Excellent - then that does make for a good work-around. Thanks much!
Actually, the event's space is one ONE partition what is sharing between user's recordings, PTAT, VOD, etc. See that post with quota interpretation.
In shot: it's common pool.
As I end week 1 with my Hopper, a resounding "I want my list back." I find the icons just a waste of time and space on the screen. The 722 way with simple folders to open or not was best and easiest.
Excuse me, since you quote my post, what part of "saving PTAT or setting timers of PTAT shows does not use ADDITIONAL space until the PTAT erasure" is incorrect? The only way that setting a timer for a PTAT show uses "additional" recording space before the PTAT erasure is if you unskip it in the Daily Schedule (a usable way to edit length).
Just clarification by explaining the DVR's space usage.
So is Dish going to bring back the list? I just switched from a 622 to Hopper and I don't like it one bit. The list was much better.
I just got my hopper/Joey installed today, and that was the first thing I noticed and didn't like the thumbnails. Just takes up too much space, would love to have a list of items back.
The many screen lists that are on the Hopper don't show any more items at once.
