Now that I have the EF update, my hard drive shows 89% free with 2 MPG4 shows recorded. If this is correct I am only going to get about 20 hours of recording space. I thought the device would get 50 hourse MPG4 and 30 hours MPG2? Either those estimates are way off or the new update is not correctly reflecting the actual space available. Does anyone know what is correct?

How long are those two MPEG4 shows?
Have you played both of them.... any chance that one of them recorded "more" then the alloted time.... (A bug that creeps in every once and a while, where the unit forgets to stop recording)

Are those the only two programs in your MyPlaylist?

You should get on average 50 hours of MPEG4.

They are both 1 hour with no padding. Law & Order and a CSI. There is a lso a 1 hour SD program in the Playlist. Before this update, it was in the higher to mid 90's, which would make more sense if you were getting the 50 hours.

For right now... my guess is that something happened, and they are taking up more room then they should.

I would not worry too much, and watch what happens when you delete those recordings after watching them.
