    I have an HR24-100 two days ago. I don't have the book, the installer told me that they come without the book. Can someone tell me what kind of space the unit have. Thanks for the advised.

    It uses the same user manual as the HR23 for all intensive purposes which can be found, downloaded, and or printed here:

    Thanks.

    That's something some folks forget...the space required to store MPEG 2 and MPEG4 HD recordings is NOT the same.

    Bad info. If the DVR dies, you're screwed because recordings can't be viewed on a different DVR.

    Not true. The recordings are tied to the DVR, so if the DVR dies the recordings are lost even if on an external drive.

    Cosmo didn't say you would be able to play them, he just said you would have them. That's correct! :lol:
