I only record HD programs in my vip722 DVR.

In the DVR interface I see that there is memory allocation for HD and SD. Wondering if there's a way I can use the SD memory for HD programming so that I can exceed the 55 hours of HD programming stored on my DVR.

I have also found that it can actually hold nearly twice as much HD as it states. Most of the MPEG4 feeds take up half as much space as what I assume the counter is based on the old MPEG2 HD feeds.

Yep.. it seems like the guestimate by the receiver is based on an average-to-worst-case MPEG2 SAT feed... which means MPEG4 SAT feeds usually take a lot less space BUT OTA recordings take a bit more.
