Actually, that's close to what Pandora calculated: he calculated 2.83GB for 1 hour 40 minutes, although he didn't know B!=b (Byte!=bit), so I corrected for that. That means he's under by about 18% (given your chart that shows 3,357,898,042 bytes used). We can call the 18% "overhead". Anyway, it's darn close to his napkin calculation (in which his only error was b!=B). Yes, the math is straightforward, once you have the right numbers and variables to plug in to the right equations.
