I often wonder how accurate the xx hours for SD and HD are. For example we went on vacation for two weeks. Came back and had 15 1 hour shows recorded in HD. However, my HD counter said I had 44 hours of HD recordring remaining out of 50 and something like 197 hours of SD. So those 15 hours of HD only took up 6 hours of the HD and 3 hours of SD recording capacity.TBoneit said:Oh yes, I knew that once you reminded me. Big OOPS!
I'm not sure but SD used to be 800Mbs to 1Gbs per hours a few years ago. Which makes the me think I should record a hour of SD and HD and then see what size is reported when moving them to an EHD. If you only do 1 at a time the size should be reported accurate.
One other thought is that they may give more bandwidth to premiums than non premiums?
If one were to disable the PTAT feature, would you then have 6 tuners to record from or 3 or some other number?Blowgun said:I personally don't find the Prime-Time Anytime feature all that compelling, so I would probably disable it and set timers the way I have always set timers.
I have read somewhere in one of the threads that you would be able to select which program(s) you want and save them so they do not get deleted after the 8 days.archer75 said:Can you setup primetime anytime to autosave certain shows so they don't get deleted after 8 days?
