From TV By The Numbers:

DVR Stockpiling: What's Piled Up On Your DVR?
But a lot of stuff piles up on my DVR. As you can see just from the sliver above I've got 9 episodes of Archer, 23 episodes of Castle and 17 episodes of Grimm (along with some stuff I stored around Matt Cain's perfect game). But there's a lot you can't see ranging from 22 episodes of Parks & Recreation, 11 episodes of The Middle, 6 episodes of Common Law. I even still have the final six episodes of Men of a Certain Age which I'm saving like a fine wine.
FULL ARTICLE HERE

So, whats stockpiled on your DVR?

Nada.

My kids HR21 always has the most recent 5 episodes of about 20 shows.

My HR34 is currently 80% free (most of that is the second season of Boardwalk Empire that my wife is working on - I've already seen them & 13 episodes of Once Upon a Time we just started watching. Other than that, only about 6 things on the unit) my HR21 is 100% free.

We generally watch something and delete it.

Back in Feb we only had about 30% free as we typically don't watch new shows right away, but since then we've either watched them or gave up on them and deleted them.

I never watch TV shows/sporting events more than once and have enough DVD's/Blu-Ray's/Netflix to not need to store movies.

Adult HR34 has the following:

6 episodes of Ice Road Truckers
2 episodes of Suits
3 episodes of Common Law
5 episodes of Kojak
3 Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction

everything else is pretty much single episodes which are recorded and watched within a night or two.

Until I decided to can it I had all the first season of Last Man Standing. Now other then some movies I have recorded during free-views I have a few episodes of Touch, and American Chopper. I always try and keep up with shows I like/watch!

For the kids, well that's another story, Dora, Caillou, Scooby, Peppa Pig, Team Umizomi, Max and Ruby... the list goes on and on. I bet you can guess (from those shows) the age of my kids. But each of those have at least 12 each.

I have 13 episodes of Flashpoint stored. My husband is stockpiling True Blood, The Borgias and Game of Thrones. He is also recording X-Files from the beginning.

I had begun re-recording MI 5. But I've caught up on those.

^ I've got a bunch of episodes of Gunn and Dragnet and Adam-12, plus some Jack Benny, Naked City, Green Hornet, Wild, Wild West, Police Story, McHale's Navy, Burns and Allen and a whole slew of other stuff, both recent and classic.

2TB HDD on the media PC nearly full. I have no idea how many hours are there.

512 doesn't have too much on it.

At the time they were on RTV, but now they're running on Antenna TV (both OTA sub-channels).

I watch & delete on my HR34. Currently at about 60-70% free space, depending on the day.

The rest of the family rarely deletes anything on their HR34, which seems to always be at 1-5% free space.

I need to get through the last 18 episodes of The Wire, 8 of Falling Skies, 4 of Justified, and a bunch of premium channel movies that I recorded anticipating a slow recording summer.

I've been keeping up with Burn Notice and Suits, so not much building up this summer yet, but usually like to always have the latest few recordings of Letterman, Leno, Conan, Kimmel, and Fallon to catch any interesting guests. And always have the last recording of Boomer & Carton as well.

The 5 tuner capability of the HR34 has made recording conflict-free, hopefully for eternity, for me and the family. If it's interesting, record it.

We must have the same kids.

We do the same with new shows. If they catch on, we will watch, if they get the hook after one season, then we will delete.

I do keep a DVR that does nothing but record movies. When we get to watch a movie, it is usually more of a spontaneous thing, so having a bunch on the DVR makes sense. Too many restrictions for PPV.

The last three episodes of Dallas on our 722k. Ordinarily we watch and delete - more like using the DVR to stockpile the commercials we like to skip thru.

We also tend to record programs and do some time-shifting. Thursdays and Fridays are our least favorite nights on TV.

Just went through and cleaned some stuff out of the External HD, had most of Ringer that I deleted and several movies I finally watched. Anyway stuff left from memory was Boardwalk empire (everything after 1st season I think 20+ episodes), Luther 6 ep's, All of Grimm, most everything is movies either newly released or older ones I like. Actual DVR doesn't have much on it after I accidentally wiped it a few weeks back, think I have a few ep's of Graham Norton and that's about all. All the new running shows currently going I like too much to watch any later than a few hours to a few days after they air.

Alphas
Person of Interest
Missing
The Firm
The Killing (both seasons)

I may never get around to watching some of the now canceled shows.
