Re: Ultra TV External HDD

I only have 30% or so filled on my DVR and I don't think I'll ever be able to watch eveything (75 recordings).

Is the 1TB (or more) needed because you run out of space or is it so you can save the shows for yourself? I didn't think that could even be done with an external drive.

The external essentially meshes with all of the storage already there (500GB). So tripling that to 1.5TB means that I can keep more stuff without having to worry about space running out for other people's stuff. 3 games into college football season and I'm sitting at 58% full with 20 or so other recordings on there. All HD. 1 game is 3 1/2 to 4 hours of HD so by the end of the season that'll be over 40 hours of space just for football...lol.

I won't ever watch a football game live again. College is probably a little better but in Pro with all the commercials and timeouts, penalties, etc. I just fast forward through the whole game and get done in under an hour. Then I erase it.
